This is certainly true.

This is why I think a secondary consideration is to "blunt" CZ's attempt to grab the mid-price range M-mount lens market.
I don't shoot M-mount so I'm only an observer. But M-mount folk are very "blessed" right now. They have the lower cost CV's, the mid-range CZ's (and these new Summarits) and then the top of the line traditional Leitz's.
Quite a renaissance of gear for RF photography.
