"Therefore, the times in which there was the need of some designers through a five or ten years stint to create a new top-notch lens were behind, but in any case, with the use of modern computers and special computer programs and softwares, the work goes on being very arduous and tremendously difficult to implement, in such a way that a top-notch Leica lens needs a lot of months of intensive work to be designed. That was the case with the superb 28mm f/2 ASPH Summicron-M designed by Michael Heiden, which took him a very hard stint of six months."
