Nope! ;-) Nikon 17-35 2.8 AF at 17....But I rarely use that lens set below
21 ...and am far more likely to use the 21 asph on the M than I am that lens
on the Nikon....

I'm sure that I will, one of these days, get the 15 for the M...but I will
be getting it as something to play with, not as a lens to use regularly, so
I haven't yet rationalized buying it. On the other hand, I've seen what
various LUGers can and have done with it, and a little voice keeps saying,
'buy it! buy it!. (One of the things that keeps me from getting it is the
fact that I do so much low light shooting, that in many situations it would
just be too slow for my purposes.)

B. D.,

Out of curiosity, in the excellent series you posted today, is the shot
of the guy with his hands on the edge of the pool taken with the 21?
