Subject: [Leica] TriElmar and shade

Need some guidance about the need for a sun shade on the new Trielmar.  Such
lens is not supplied with a bulit in shade, but the elements are well set
back into the barrel.  Wonder if anyone here has used the lens, and would
care to comment on whether or not a shade is necessary or desirable.  While
one is talking about the Trielmar, how about the max aperature of F4?  Has
such relatively high F Max proven to be any problem in so far as using the
lesn?  I had hoped that one might only need to take a single lens on a trip
to Europe...believe that one needs to take at least one Summicron along, and
perhpas the accessory 28 viewer for the .85 TTL.
