Congrats Jo!!

I too got one of the 500 SC's produced, according to another LUGer, nice
feeling, substantial - Tri-Em's a super lens.  Consider a ND filter to use
wider apertures in bright daylight - narrower DOF.

Do post photo's & comments.

Hello all.
This sunday I woke up at 02h00 AM with one goal in mind :
going to Bièvres , at the annual photo sale , and buy a used
Tri-Elmar .
I arrived by 06h00 AM in the the early morning , and noticed
that most of the sellers were already in action .
In the cold air , I could separate about 5 Tri-E's , all used but
in good condition .
But one Belgium seller offered a Chrome version , brand new ,
for a fair price , inclueding the part exchange of my 50 'cron .
Talking about the 50 , this is the Leica lens that you can find
very easily in Bièvres .
So I took the Chrome version of that Tri-E , wich is much firmier
than all the black ones I've tested today .
I've been said the Chrome version of the Tri-E was produced in a
very small batch ?
I like the versatility of that lens , despite it's poor brightness .
I'm still keeping my beloved 35 'cron asph and the 90 / 2.8
Tele Elmarit .
Any infos regarding the Tri-E are welcome .

will soon walk with mud covered combat boots...
