Hi, Bill:

Try to get a used Super Angulon. Although slower, the older f 4.0 or 3.4 are
even better than the 2.8 (sharpness, contrast), and the Super Angulon is
better than the Elmarit (sharpness). I was unhappy with the 28 (the visual
angel difference to the 35 is too small, the sharpness is to low - even
compared to Nikon). I never used a 24. My favorite 50 is the summicron
because of contrast and details even at f 2.0, although the late summilux is
not so bad either (if you don't use f1.4).
