But Mike Johnston of Photo Techniques really loves the 35 Summicron R for it's image quality and flare control. The new 50 Summilux R is going to be the best of breed. The 50 Summicron is a great lens, but quite an old formula. (I'm betting it's going to be updated with an ASPH some day). - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch What is the probability that something will happen according to the odds?
