The 90mm Summicron-M has F 2 and 2.8, pictures have a very 
smooth, creamy look to them.  At F4 and 5.6, images pop - with an almost 3d 
appearance.....But the 90/2.8 is cold and clinical - there is no modeling... 
some may like/want that...but not me.  Maybe "fingerprint" is a word you all 
understand more clearly...

Hi Dan,
Man that's an interesting comment... "but no personality?" Gee how does a
lens of cold glass and metal have a personality?

I know women sure have personalities, some guys also, but a lens?

Surely you mean something else other than personality? I wonder if you might
elaborate sir? Thank you.
