Excellent!  It will be a magazine I will sure try to get...hopefully it'll 
be available in English?  My German is a bit, er, rusty...  Your recent MTF 
article in Leica Fotografie was excellent.  Also, for those who haven't 
seen it, the latest Hasselblad lense catalog has MTF charts in the back...

Is there any MTF info on the Zeiss lenses for the Contax?

One of my favorite films too!

Now if you'd only do a study on film scanning.... ;-)
