I had the thin Tele Elmarit, used it in the same conditions you mention
and sold it after 6 months to buy the current Elmarit. The major =
for me was flare:when the light comes from a certain angle flare is =
severe and I screwed up some pictures.Very compact and light lens,
though, to be a 90.
I'm very very happy now with the Elmarit:sharpness, color rendition and
3D effect are very good even at full aperture.

Subject: [Leica] 90 Elmarit-M vs. Tele-Elmarit-M

I've owned a thin Tele-Elmarit-M for about 4 months.  I love its size
the tonality it gives me, and most of the sharpness problems I've had
it have been my own.  However, after reading all the enthusiastic
about the current 90 Elmarit-M, I've been wondering about buying one.

My question is whether there would be a noticeable diffence in image=20
quality given the way I work.  I shoot exclusively hand-held on color
(Reala or RG200), generally at f/4 to f/11.

Can anyone who has used both these lenses comment on the differences in =

sharpness, contrast and image structure under these conditions?
