Konica. So said Bob Shell on Compuserve. He was pretty sure of himself. And
I still say there will be a 90 Summicron R ASPH APO. My source is quite
reliable. But I did promise to no reveal him/her. Maybe it's longer off
than the M version in the future. Leica has all ASPH-element-making
machines in Canada and Germany (yes, Canada at the Hughes plant) going at
full capacity. Which is one reason the 90 M APO ASPH has been delayed.

Suuuurrrreeee, they're about to go out of business. :-)

A trap! Argh!
