Ben My point can hardly be construed, even by the most paranoid, as a 'flogging'. Your initial post was of taking photographs of the face AND hands of your (age-unspecified) child; I properly suggested it was an infant. Your figures are that you child possess a face 6" wide and your 90mm lens will cover, at its closest, 8.9". Thus, it strikes me that, with the hands included, the 90mm will fill your needs perfectly. You NOW, in your second missive, throw in a refusal to crop and a wish to photograph just one eye. I agree with your suggestion that a Leica M will not fit your needs unless you used a 50mm NF/DR Summicron or a SOOKY or the like. As to cumbersome, I find all SLR's cumbersome, and I would find it especially annoying to have to use TWO different systems. But you might not find it so.
