When I see slides I have shot in good light with the latest Elmarit 90 
projected, I am often taken by surprise by the brilliance of the image.  I 
react strongly, as do other viewers, or so they say.  However, I have never 
used the lens for portraiture.  What woman of a certain age wants her every 
facial line, crow's foot and wrinkle emphasized so mercilessly?  One day, I 
may try to find a grizzled cowhand to shoot in black and white, but until 
that opportunity comes my way, give me the ancient glass for what it does
