With the introduction of the new Leica M (type 240) the digital Leica M system is now suitable for telephoto focal lengths during Live View operation. As a result, the APO-Telyt-M 1:3,4/135mm (11889) will now be manufactured with the 6-BitCoding.
Starting 2nd January 2013 Leica Customer Care will offer the conversion of the uncoded APO-Telyt-M 1:3,4/135mm (11889) to our customers. So far the lens has only been available without a 6-bit Coding due to the limited usability of telephoto focal lengths in combination with the Leica rangefinder.
