I have this lens in a late model black mount. It is extremely sharp right to
the edges and has very little flare. It consists of 3 components, 4 elements
and is a true telephoto design. Its main liability is weight. The center
element is almost two inches thick and the lens weighs nearly a pound. It
focuses well on my M3 Leicas, but focusing accuracy might be marginal on later
models with reduced RF magnification. It is better than the Elmar but I don't
have any other equivalent focal length Leica lenses to compare it with. -
