Bud:

The 28Ti has an astounding lens. I owned one before I owned a Leica, and =
it
was the beginning of my Leica transformation. It renders the same
microdetailed images that I get with my Leica Glass. I sold mine to get a=
n
M-4P as a second body, but there will be another in my future someday. Yo=
u
will not find the slides from a 28Ti out of place in a tray of Leica
images. It's really more the other way around, they stand out in a tray o=
f
Nikkor slides. It was my search for images with the tonality of the 28Ti
that led me to Leica.
