BD finds it difficult to talk about longer lenses. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of B. D.

Right now, I have some lenses between 21mm and 50mm. With the recent addition of the 28 Summicron, I think I'm pretty content in this range. So I'm putting out feelers for a longer lens. Right now, the 90/2.8 looks enticing. Not too big, built in convenient shade, pricey but not way too pricey, E46 filters like my 28/2. Any issues regarding the 90/2.8? Any "better" options I should consider? Should I wait for the Zeiss 85mm and see how she performs? Any other size, weight, speed tradeoffs I should consider? Should I spring for the 1.25x magnfier to use this lens on my M6 w/.72 finder? Right now I shoot a few short teles on my Nikon FM3a: 85/1.8, 105/2.5 and 135/2.8. So this will be my first foray into shooting a longer lens on my Leica. Thanks for any advice. Scott _______________________________________________ Leica Users Group.
