probably due to the coincident popularity of lenses which do not control 
flare as well as the current Leica lenses.   >>

I agree.  Particularly, zooms and poorly designed teles are candidates.  
Interestingly, if I remember correctly, Erwin found Kodak Elite EC to be the 
most satisfactory film he tested with one of the latest and finet Leica 
zooms.  It was either the  70-180 APO or 35-70/2.8 Aspheric.
