Jay, what would you say the main improvements relate to? > If you are interested in an old 19, I think the 21/4 Super Angulon is > better. (Conflict of interest disclosure: I have a Super Angulon for > sale). I have used all three. 21 wouldn't get me far enough away from my 24mm, I feel; I like large jumps between my lenses, such as to leave no doubt as to why I have to change a lens for another one. I mostly shoot 24-50-90. I do have a 28, but that's just because it so happens to be the PC lens. Bernard Jacobs.
