The lens will not meter as it is. It is possible to modify the mount; basically you grind away the obstruction after disassembling the rear optical group. This modification has received mixed reviews. The filter size is E48 or series....7...I think. I am not too sure about the series filter size as I used E48 filters myself. For a review go here: http://www.imx.nl/photosite/leica/mseries/testm/m21.html The one advantage the SA has over the 21/2.8Asph is lower distortion. The 21/2.8Asph does not have much distortion; it is just that the 21/3.4 has even less. I had a 21/3.4 SA but it really is only good to f/4 which I found to a bit limiting. I sold it and eventually replaced it the Asph. I have no regrets. The 21/2.8Asph is a stunning lens wide open. My only problem now is one of complete incompetence....;-) > From: "Mark Pope" <firstname.lastname@example.org> > > I had a look at a 21mm Super Angulon on a M2 last week.
