I didn't own a single Russki lens when I tested the Komura.  Tried it on
Summitar and collapsible Summicron.  For once, I agree with Pop:  "muddy
images distinguished only by vague blotches of color", or words to that

I encourage all on the list to try the Komura 2x tele-converter:  these are
still available new, I believe, from Cambridge, that paragon of lens
salesmanship.  Just make sure you have a MBG -- you'll be desperate to send
it back!

Steve, do YOU own one of these Komura gems?
