Erwin Puts,

>>Most modern Leica lens meet the 60-65 lp/mm<<
        >> & across part of the field<<

>>New R-50 f1.4 is better than the Zeiss Planar 1.4<<

     >>Vacuum back does hardly improve............<<

As always, Erwin, you're a "breath of fresh air". Your 
knowledge base is awesome & a valuable addition for
LUG members such as myself. Getting at the facts
is never a trivial task :-) !

>>shot pictures with the new Summilux-R 1.4/.50<<
>>& the Summicron-M 2/50 at all apertures............<<
>>on the itself an interesting observation<<

I would sure like to hear the rest of your observations
regarding the new Summilux-R 1.4/50 vs the other
Leica 50s.....I'd bet the other LUG members would too!

Thanks again,
Tom D.
