New Leica lens is f 0.95

It is said to weigh over a pound, be bigger than the camera, and be likely to cost $10,000

IMO: In the old days when 'available light' photography was important, I sometimes used a variant of S19a, a hydrazine developer which got 10,000 or 15,000 ASA on roll and 35mm film . Alright but some grain clumping. In those days I located an allegedly f 0.7 lens ! It was supposed originally to be for x-ray cameras but we reckoned we could modify it for a Hasselblad (or Lubitel). I never got one though and from the cost and size specifications given now by Leica, it probably would have been disappointing.
