Thanks for your comments.

I have a (Canon) 100mm, a 135mm, and a 200mm. Over the years, I found
that I almost always choose the 135 over the 200--working distance is
too large. In any case, I think, with the Leicas, I'd still get a 90, a
135, and a 180. What are you asking for the 180? Also, could you tell me
what the serial numbers are on the 90 and 180? According to this list I
pulled off the net, there were three versions of the 90 and two versions
of the 180. I'm trying to find the latest.

Thank you.
