Yes, the 2.8s are all APO. And stunning lenses they are.

But there were two other 100 Macro lenses. They're f/4. And I can say from
experience they are super lenses too. One is standard focusing mount on R
cameras. The other is bellows only. You can find them for a song. Don't
know if they go on the current Leica bellows.

A camera store - Citizen Photo in Portland, OR - uses the 100 f/4 macro for
their slide dupes. And it produces really nice results.
