Some additional information/rumors on the upcoming Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24?70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens (L-mount):

The Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens will be a part of a new “economy line” from Leica (not sure for the exact name of the new product line)
The official announcement should be in May
The lens will be priced just slightly higher than the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for L-mount (still under ?3,000/$3,000?)
The lens will not have an all-metal body like other Leica SL lenses
The design and construction will be very similar to the current Panasonic Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for L-mount:
