Subject: ASPH vs. ASPH, etc.

A few notes from FL370, seat 27F, United flight 1222 from LAX to BWI:

Erwin, a respectful request reiterated here -- can you compare the
optical performance of the 35 1.4 ASPH to the new 35 2.0 ASPH? 

>From 2.0 to 16, which is better?

Enquiring minds really want to know.

Second, gosh this is a great group. Thanks, again, all, for
contributing. What's happened to Ian Stanley in Nepal? Haven't heard
from him in a while. Miss the daily reports from there, Hong Kong,
Singapore, etc.

Old news newly told: It's a false economy to buy from disreputable
dealers (many, not all, in Pop Photo, including all selling gray market
stuff). Spend the extra bucks and you'll be happier in the long run. 

Oops, turbulance! More later.
