Leica MSO 24mm f/2 -- a real pancake

A lot smaller than my 24/2 Nikkor Ais.

Not a bad price, at $1100 to $1200. This is a limited production lens, with some specialty optics. It's wide and fast, also close to the film plane.

Note that the tests were done with a film camera. This lens is wide, and close to the sensor- I would wait until images are released for the M240 and M10 before committing to getting one.

I would not worry about using one on an M9 or M Monochrom. My Nikkor 28/3.5 is perfect on the two of them. Also very close to the image place.

the swirly bokeh in that blue flower shot is definitely a little on the "nervous" side.

Fwiw, a sample of his earlier Perar 21/4.5 at f/5.6. It vignettes, and this shot is slightly cropped, but the top left is dark because the shot was taken through a chain link fence.
