Leica announces a new THAMBAR-M 90mm f/2.2 lens for M-mount rangefinders

The previously rumored Leica THAMBAR-M 90mm f/2.2 lens is now officially announced. The US price of the new lens is $6,495. Pre-orders are currently open at B&H and Adorama.

From LeicaRumors:

The design of the original Thambar lens has been almost completely preserved in the new Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2. The black paint finish, the proportions of the lens and its aperture engravings in red and white are nearly identical, while slight modifications align with the design of modern M-Lenses. The most pronounced difference between this lens and the original is the single-coating to protect the glass against environmental influences and surface corrosion. Additional information on the old THAMBAR lens can be found here.
