In a surprise announcement, the Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 was made available for pre-order earlier today, at a price of $599. You can choose either a black or silver version, depending on your preference of stealth vs shiny.
The lens features three aspheric elements, Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating to reduce reflections and flare, and an aperture ring for compatible bodies.
An interesting focal length choice, but given its small size, if it renders anything like the other Leica-branded Panasonic lenses, it should make for a versatile little optic!
