on the basis of these pictures you could be the editor of any number of
english photomags, or maybe the publisher of one as your pictures are
superior to the test of the 15mm heliar i saw. those had inexplicable
distortion ,yours 
are only horrible. a reporter for one of the sat shows bought a ps zoom that
brooked no imput from the photographer whatsoever. when she wanted the front
of the house, the camera shot the door.  when she wanted a closeup of the
baby she got the room. try it, we'll like it. ralph
