I like my copy very much. It is a good general source of Leica lens
information though it does not rate the optical performance of the lenses.
It helps to sort out the various versions but does not go into the kind of
detail that Jim Lager's books do. The info on part numbers of hoods, caps
and what not has a few mistakes so a Leica Handbook or two helps to keep you
on the straight and narrow.
