Yes, he said he wants a 34 or 35mm fast aperture lenses line the Panasonic F/1.7 that does not cost $1100 and is as big as a coke can like the Zeiss. Seems like a reasonable request.

You'd think if creating a fast 24mm lens that is tiny and light were that simple, Leica's experts would have figured out a way to make their excellent 24mm Summilux considerably smaller than a coke can, and definitely not tip the scale at a portly 500g? And that isn't a lens with stabilization or an AF motor.
