Leica Q2 35 anybody?

Just had a look at this lens:

https://www.dpreview.com/news/4605979283/leica-announces-apo-summicron-m-35mm-f2-asph

... and thought: would there be a market for one of these when paired with a Q2 body? I use an RX1RII at the moment but would rather use a Leica. It's just the 28mm and the fixed screen that I find are currently in my way to just "go for it" ...

Why doesn't Leica milk this a bit more? There is a strong following for the 35mm format, look at the X100 series. Or the above mentioned RX1 series ... add the Zeiss oddity and you might be mistaken thinking that this is an ok focal length.

With 46Mpx it would certainly be of interest for me as I often enough do portraits and the crop factor going all the way up to 75mm (7.5Mpx, on paper still good, but you know...) would be a more confident task.

A camera like that would certainly have some appeal for me ...
