Unfortunately, I've never had it in my hands, Ed. So, I couldn't
compare it myself - and forgot it :( in the table. I learnt,
that it's the same as the 3.4/21 M SA (but with SL mount), which I 
feel as one of Leitz's two or three*) most finest lenses (although 
it's from JSK). 

The other, most finest lenses from Leitz are the 35 and 50 mm 
M Summicrons, in my mind, and although the 50 mm R Summicron is more 
sharp. Later, Solms presented some other fine lenses aditionally.

If you ever intend to separate from your special SA, Ed, mail me, 
please, I'm highly interested - It will come into caring hands :)
