I'm sure the Summicron 90 AA is everything everyone has said it is, but I'm
too fond of the performance, size, weight,  & shape of the Elmarit to give

P.S. Having similar feelings about the 35 Summilux; don't think I could
give up the 35 Summicron to get one (but did hang on to my Summicron 50
when I got the Noctilux).
