Nathan Wajsman et al,

>>90mm:  f2.71 ( so the Elmarit comes close, while<<
                   >>the Summicron exceeds it<<

I'm curious what your experience has been with the
x.85 rangefinder & the 90 f2.  I had a very difficult time
with the x.72 & the 90 f2.8; getting those critical areas
in focus. & yes, my rangefinder was in alignment!

I might think about getting back into Ms if the
X.85( 90 f2 apo ) can focus quickly & accurately;
working at full frame ( more or less ) portrait
