Subject: 21/4 Super-Angulon-R

Is the 21/4 Super-Angulon-R still made?  (This is the later, slower
retrofocus design.)  Retailers no longer seem to have new ones listed.

Incidentally, while looking up this lens in Eastland's "Leica R
Compendium," I noticed that the 24/2.8 Elmarit-R is described as the
lens of choice for people needing something between a 28 and a 21, or
words to that effect!  Clearly, it's preferable to the 25/2
Summicron-R and the 23/4 Elmar-R.
