Leica Thambar M90

In a world where tack-sharp photography is the norm, Leica is going against convention by introducing a reissue of their soft focus lens, the Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2. Released in 1935, the lens returns with its original design almost fully intact with the same black lacquered finish, same proportions, and the original's red and white aperture engravings. They've even recreated the leather case, which is crafted in a "Vintage Brown" that is just like the case it came with decades ago. 

Available this November.
