Leica should hire me... :-)

Let us know how it goes, for sure. See if I'm right.

But I would never pull a punch if I didn't like a lens.

Let's see, what Leica lens did I not like...much...

35 Summicron M - three version before ASPH.

Turns out it was slightly out of focus (apologies to Capa).

Actually, I didn't like the 21 f/4 Elmarit all that much.
