So, the same lens for both mounts, with different looks. Which makes the price difference a bit questionable...

The "Leica (mount) tax" is relatively moderate in this case... just 33% LOL. Smile

B&H lists the SL II at $699 and the VM at $799. I'd consider this a fairly moderate "Leica tax", given that the VM has to include the rangefinder coupling, too.

Nice little lens, though... a pity I just (finally!) sold all M gear Wink

You can adapt this nice little lens to Nikon Z-mount too (both versions even!) Wink

I know Smile I even have an adapter, but it's glued to the SLR Magic 50/0.95 Wink

If I feel the itch for small gear, I usually pick the Fuji now. And I've been doing so for the last 2 or 3 years, which is one (of several) reasons to finally get rid of the Leicas.
