I wish Steve Huff has been this honest about his HyperPrime review...well...I wish he's this honest about ALL of his reviews...but I digress...

This product is half-baked.  Undergoing mechanical design revisions since the started shipping is just...well...weird IMO.  And based on your description, even the quality of the lens is questionable at best.

I would not pay $1K let alone $5K for this.

Unfortunately, there will be a lot others who will fall into this trap of buying a sub-par lens for the Leica M.  It got the hype it didn't deserve thanks to Steve Huff and his posse.
