Subject: 19/2.8 vs 21/4

Hy guys,

I need an advise. I'm going to make a _big_ investment buying a short
focal for my R4. I've found a used Elmarit 19/2.8, old model (that
without the filter inside) and the price is comparable with Super
Angulon 21/4 and also Elmarit 24/2.8. In Italy the price is around

But I'm not sure of the superiority of the old elmarit 19/2.8 on the
21/4 or on the 24/2.8, which as I know is made in Japan by Minolta.
Some of you have a relevant experience, it would be a great help.
