Subject: Re: [Leica] COVERAGE OF PC LENS

It's probably true, but the subject will be a whole lot smaller on the 19mm
image. Like maybe a Minox size portion of the 35mm frame will contain your
subject, rather than the entire frame (perhaps exaggerating a little.) If
you aren't making large prints, you might get away with it.
