Hey Chuck,

Ah yes,  _my_  :-)  thin Tele-Elmarit, back when the 90mm
was my favorite focal length.    It was Buzz Hausner who taught 
me the delights of the thin Tele-ELmarit.  I had that, the 90m 
Elmarit-M, the 90mm Summicron AA, and the Summicron non-AA.
Love them all.  I miss the Tele-Elmarit the most because that
one was a very clean, very smooth focusing one, and they
are much harder to get in that condition.  I am glad it's
in good hands now.   When you are tired of it, let me know.

The only 90mm I have now is the Voigtlander APO Lanthar
90mm f3.5, really a superb lens, albeit a tad slow. But it's
light and I can use it on my LTM cameras.
