Doug Herr, >>so the 90 Summicron-R will not do, and is the 80 ( Summilux-R)<< >>too short<< By "gap" I mean the 90 Summicron-R is not available new & it's formula should be updated to make it an "apo"....like the M version! I've worked with a R-80 f1.4 before & it's a great lens. However, for me it was a "tad" short relative to 85mm thru 100 focal lengths. If Contax falters with the N1; i.e, early reviews indicate their AF lenses are lessor than their MF versions........optically or build quality. I'd reconsider the R-80 along with the Nikkor 85 f1.4.
