The thread-mount lenses ARE rather elderly, being Steinheil lenses, and they went west in '58 or so. But the bayonet-mount lenses are more modern designs by Dr Staeble, and I haven't a problem with THEIR quality! The Novoflex marriage with Leica only extends, I believe, to their Leica offerings. The rest of the line remains Staeble offerings. Marc firstname.lastname@example.org FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
