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. :-) >What were you hinting at? Don't worry, I won't tell anyoone. A trap!
