No worries Kevin.
That black finish looks fantastic, and I love the engravings on the caps and container.
When you have time, will you confirm my order?

Thank you Sid. I am just joking here. One lens is enough. It is too costly to get all three finishes.

I had the same dilemma. Stretched the ol' budget enough to get just one. There wasn't room for two (or three).

The kits looks quite impressive. Cannot wait to use it.

I have chrome lenses and black lenses, so the replica lenses will have to be in a different finish.

8 ELEMENT

The space between the 8 and ELEMENT is less confusing.

8 element is improper ... I think.
Both are OK.

No more so than saying you drive a "four door" car, or live in a "three bedroom" house.

Grammatically, I think "8 ELEMENT" is more in line with the other descriptors of the lens: 35mm, f/2.0, which specify numerical measures rather than a count of what's being measured.

I asked for "8-ELEMENT" in my order (with a dash) so it looks more like one word.

It needs the word “lens” after 8 element.
Saying “I drive a four door” and not have “car” does not sound correct.

8-ELEMENT is what people usually call it, e.g., the 8-element 35mm Summicron.

"I drive a coupe", "I don't have a convertible", "I also have a four-door", "My Leica M2 proudly wears an 8 Element Summicron!" See, Raid, it works fine.

You have to email Kevin for the link to the form, but he recently stated the order wait list for the first batch has closed. His email is in earlier posts, if you read backwards through the thread.

Oh...Wow!...it looks gorgeous!

I feel humbled to have the opportunity to own one.

Thank you Maker; thank you Kevin Xu.

(I too like the Chinese characters on the lens case).

How about '8th element'? As is 'Oxygen, element symbol O, is the element that is atomic number 8 on the periodic table'

Looking at this link it the whole idea has given us lots of oxygen!

Far to long - the limit is 8 or perhaps 9 characters (space included).

I hope to order the LTM variant when it shows up later - but it'd be the second most expensive lens to buy for me..

Hi raid, you haven’t miss anything. You are on the early buying list. No worries. I am now catching a flight flying to China. Will update more information later.

Cheers,
Kevin

I am sorry. It’s too late to reserve the first batch 8-element replica. We now stop receiving orders. Please wait for the next batch.
