    One of my lens suppliers was advertising the limited availability of the new Voigtlander 12mm M mount lens, but the ad disappeared the next day. I contacted the supplier to find out why, thinking that they'd sold out, but apparently there has been a recall. The supplier doesn't really know much, but thinks there is an issue with the M9.

    This is one of the lenses that I've been seriously considering; however, the review of the Olympus 9-18mm on DPR makes this lens sound very tempting, despite it's Krappy Plakky construction. I can only imagine what such a lens would be like, if it was in much the same optical quality, manual focus only and made out of metal. I would pay twice the price or more for that.

    Cheers
