Subject: [Leica] R 90mm Elmarit's sweet spot?
From: leica_korenman at (eric)

For the past year  I have been shooting family and portrait work with an R7
with 60mm Macro and 90mm Elmarit lenses.
I have heard much praise on the LUG for the 90mm elmarit, but I just can't
get my lens to 'sing' like my 60mm.
Images always seems a bit too soft (well, yes compared to the razor sharp
60mm), but I like deadly sharp focus.
Any suggestions? - I try to shoot the 90mm at 5.6. I am usually using
strobes, so shutter speed is 1/100.
