Will there be much difference in the size of this lens as compared to the
28mm/2.8 and the 35mm/1.4?  I had planned on purchasing a 28mm/2.8 in or near
February for a trip to Italy, but it sounds like the 28mm/2 may be worth the
wait.  Also...please forgive me, but.....what is Photokina?  I understand that
it is in it a specific Leica exposition or for photography in

Thanks to all,
Robert Clark
