Of all the transactions I've made with Jim, only one thing bothers me.  At
about the time the new 35 Summicron ASPH came out, I called him up to buy
one.   He convinced me that I'd be better off with the pre-ASPH.   I'm still
not sure whether Jim was anxious to sell his stock of pre-ASPH lenses or if
he really believed what he was telling me.

I'm happy with the pre-ASPH and so I rationalize why it's a better lens than
the ASPH (neutral color rendition, small size, better hood, lower price).

BTW, he did give me great prices on some used Nikkors.
