Subject: Need feeedback on M 90mm lenses

I'm trying to decide on which M 90mm lens is best for what
I do which is mainly ersatz photo-journalism and a fair amount
of street shooting. I find I will often make use fo f2 in low
light situations (i.e. in a theatre, gallery reception, etc).
I'm considering a 90mm lens. I like the 90mm f2 Summicron with it's
built-in shade and it's faster aperture. However, it's a real HONKER 
in terms of it's size & weight compared to the 90mm f2.8 Tele-Elmarit.
Does anyone have any insights on the major differences in the
performance of these lenses wide open or in general that are worth

Thanks ahead of time,

Mark Eastman
