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. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
