And on nearly the same subject, a Leica rep with whom I spoke yesterday
told me that the recently-demised 135/4 Tele (the "modern" version which
has the integral shade) is "the buy of a lifetime" right now, because
evidently this version of the lens was produced in *very* small numbers
(comparable to the Hologon and Thambar) and once the current crop (traded
on the APO-Telyt) disappears from the market, it will be a *very*
precious collector piece with a price to match.  I didn't tell him I
happen to have one...I just smiled and nodded, then went home and began
erecting a fitting shrine ; )
