Hey, hey, hey!!  Easy there!  You're talking about one of my absolute, top
favorites lenses there!  I have the old, black, removable lens-head 90mm
Summicrons and I absolutely adore it.  Wouldn't switch it for anything,
regardless of what cryptic achronym resided on the barrel. ;)

"Wart hog" it ain't!  Maybe a triceratops, but certainly no wart hog! ;)
