Re: "Logically follows"

Correct... in-lens shutter belongs to museums and history (1/500 is the best perhaps). I'm puzzled why folks discuss it!

... Currently, the Leica S2 is planned to allow both alternatives: the body has a focal plane shutter, but the lenses also come in versions with their own built-in leaf shutters. The advantage of the shuttered lens is higher flash sync speeds.

Should also cite the negatives:

The disadvantage of in-lens leaf shutters is that they make lenses even that much more costly and they tend to limit the maximum speed of the lens (because the types of shutters are only so large in diameter).
