Dominique Pellissier, >>But, I prefer my good old Elmarit 90 R<< A phrase from one of your last MSGs; almost an after- thought. Which prompted me to realize just how often I use mine & bring back many a great "moment". I have a Billingham f5.6 bag, in which I carry one body ( R8) & two lenses ( Elmarit 24 & 90 ); it goes with me almost everywhere. In contrast, I've got some other optical gems; however, it's the light weight & balance which motivates me to carry & thus, get into my hands & actually use it! I wonder how many others do as I've done. Spend money for the impeccable glass & then use the so called "lessor" lenses for the "joyful" work (&>)! In retrospect, I could shoot most everything with just the 24mm, 90mm, & 180mm Elmarits. How'd I end up with all this extra gear. Truly a madness! Look what you set in motion, Dominique, with just a casual phrase. Forgive my ramblings (&>)! Tom D.
