The only Leica lens to compete with the 80-200 made by Kyocera is stunningly good, the 70-180 Vario Apo Elmarit R, the best zoom lens that exists for consumer purchase. (I know hardly anything about movie lenses by Panavision and such, except they are - were? - made in Midland at the old Leica plant. The old Zeiss 80-200 f/4 that might compete has been out of production for a long time). And the 28-70 was introduced along with the RE, and both described as an inexpensive way to get into the Leica system. All things being relative, of course. :-) Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
