Subject: Re: M6 range finder w/ lens longer than 75mm??
Date: Mon, 24 Nov 97 08:20:59 PST

      I had a bad experience of using 135/4 Tele-Elmar on my M4-P at night. 
     It was my first time to use the M4-P with the 135 (I was testing the 
     body and the lens).  I was shooting the Chinese New Year Festival in 
     San Francisco.  You cannot imagine how much I missed my M3 that night. 
      That's why I use the M3 regularly.  The 90mm, however, should be 
     usable on the M2, M3 and later models.

Is this true?  I was planning on getting a 90 and/or 135mm lens for my M6 as 
soon as I can afford one.
I was trying to decide which to get first.  Years ago, in a previous Leica 
experience, I don't remember any problems focusing my 90mm M lens.  What 
does LUG have to say?
