    Their production capacity is fully committed just to support their own systems. They have a months-long backlog of orders for M lenses despite ever-higher prices, and they have plans for further development of the M and S systems and possibly for a future mirrorless digital system.

    A dealer I often buy from - www.vintage.visuals.com - has a selection (which changes constantly) of used Leica R lenses. No 90mm at present, but you can check in from time to time. He is based in Calgary so you don't have to deal with customs/exchange rates/extortionate shipping, etc. I have dealt with Vintage for over a decade and have the prices there to be reasonable and the grading to be quite consistent.

    The R lenses I've seen lately have still been less than M's
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
