Henning did a great comparison of all the 21s for LHSA. His conclusions 

- that the 21ASPH was the best all round with no regard to cost,
- that the 21/3.4 SA had the lowest distortion,
- that the 21/4 VC was a close second on both counts,
- and, that Tom A's 21VC was better than the one he ordered after 
testing Tom's :-)
