I hope that there will be a sufficient number of lenses available for all who interested here.
I want to make this lens my "travel lens" . It will replace my pre-asph Lux.

It makes it possible now to get such a package for $1000, Chris. Isn't this just great!

I'm not sure if I am on the list from my earlier post some time ago, so please put me on the list for a Black lens from 1st batch (unless chrome is availble at the same time). Thanks.

I hope that our wishes for certain colors will not divert us to a later stage delivery and for a different cost. Are all colors on brass material for the lens or are some lenses made from lighter materials?

Hi Kevin;

I'm confirming my interest from an earlier post: please put me on the list for a black paint lens.

If there is any possibility of the maker allocating serial numbers: a lens with multiple 3's,6's and/or 9's would be amazing! (my lucky numbers!)

Thank you so much for sharing all you know about this project on RFF.

eck.

Why are most requests for a black lens?

Raid;

The bronze lens looks fantastic for sure, and may well end up being worth more as a "unique" lens

I'm a street photographer; so anything that reduces "catching the eye" helps: hence black paint.

I might also be a bit of a traditionalist 😉

This makes sense. I have a chrome Cron, so I want the unusual bronze version.

Probably because the black version of the real lens was a great rarity?

Another +1 to wanting to join the list for a black one. Thanks.
I look forward to hearing what ‘the maker’s’ other project lens is.

They made a grave error when coming up with the name: "Light Lens Lab"
Could be pronounced as 'Right Lens Lab'. That sounds allright.
But. You know, we in Europe are better in certain things.

The name should have been "Lightz"

Sorry to rain on your parade but this cliché must die. Mandarin speakers usually have no problems distinguishing r and l in English, Japanese speakers and AFAIK speakers of some Chinese dialects may, but nowadays nearly everyone in China can speak Mandarin... the French, Dutch and German r sounds are another issue, but not in question in this case.

I'd suggest that an order list is published online, including the various configurations, prices, and delivery times. Cheers

I would also like to have my name on the list for one, can be either black or chrome. I have already one of the original ones that had the attached SM--> adapter, and it is a favorite lens.

RE the dot color:

Maybe every company have have its own dot color. To date it's been Red for Leica, Blue for Zeiss; so that leaves green, yellow, and black up for grabs.

I have worked in China, and some (think of it maybe only the project lead) people of my team did, while others didn't. I agree, Japanese and afaik Korean speakers do confound the two.
I ended up speaking a bit in between in my English.

Apart from my joke on the r/l, Lightz is a good name with the intended pun, and I would hope they have the rightz on that name for future use. By the way I have the original V1. Hence my interest. It is a great lens.

Hey Kevin -- please put me down for a black copy of the lens. Email is [email protected] if that makes order tallying easier.

Any idea of when these might be available for purchase/shipment? Thanks!
