Will Wright in the first article had taken some classic looking shots of Werner
Von Braun in the late 50's with his new IIIc and Summitar which he got new for $125.

A stupendous article with amazing illustrations by Ed Schwartzreich about German
photographer Alfred Tritschler. 
What an interestingly different perspective for us Leicaphiles to be getting
into this whole thing!
	Clue: has a lot to do with Volkwagens.

And most meaningful to us Lugnuts our Tom Abrahamsson and Henning Wolf put
together a comparison on 4 21's.
2 1/4 Cosina/Voigtländer
12/3.5 Ricoh
21/3.4 Super-Angulon
21/2.8 Elmarit Aspherical

Right here worth the price of admission.

A shot Henning did with the 21 Super-Angulon really close of a Momma Goose and
two chicks looks like it was done with a 50. A 75 even!
I'm enamored with the idea of shooting with that 21/3.4 Super-Angulon.
I may go there first before the more obvious (for me) choice of the 21/2.8
Elmarit Aspherical.
