Following the success of its first lens, fledgling manufacturer Thypoch has started shipping its eagerly anticipated second: the Thypoch Simera 28mm f/1.4.

Thypoch is a lens company that hit the scene last year at Photopia Hamburg, Germany, and Salon de la Photo in Paris, France, teasing two Leica M lenses – the Simera 35mm f/1.4 Asph and the Simera 28mm f/1.4 Asph. The 35mm f/1.4 was released in November 2023, and received positive reviews for its design quality and lightweight form factor. Now Thypoch has announced that the shipping of its sibling, the 28mm f/1.4, has begun.
