The latest 2.8/90mm Elmarit is every bit as good as the Summicron, 
except at 2.0 :-) It is considerably smaller and obviously much less 
expensive. I am very familiar with both lenses, since I used to have the 
Elmarit and upgraded to the Apo Summicron when that came out. I am happy 
with the upgrade since I do use the extra stop, but if you can live 
without it, then the Elmarit will give you excellent results.
