Someone asked whether I knew whether the 50/2.8 Elmar on the M6J had been
recomputed (since its discontinuance in the '60's) and whether it was available

The Elmar was not being sold separately at the shop at which I saw it 
(naturally I stopped in at more than one Leica emporium, but  only "Lemon"
had an M6J).  The November issue of Asahi Camera has a little note on the M6J
"What's New at Photokina"-type thing, but I'm afraid I can only discern
the following facts from this article, my kanji being a little rusty:
1640 M6J sets will be made.
The fincer contains fromes only for 35, 50, 90, and 135mm lenses.
The article makes several references to the G1 but I haven't doped out the
context yet.

If anyone on this group reads Japanese I'd be happy to FAX the article out in
the hope of seeing a translation on the net.
