Subject: [Leica] Quasi-PAW Elmarit-RAW 180mmf/2.8 on Canon EOS 10D

Everone remember the 180mm f/2.8 that Charles Hehl had for sale last 
week? Sometimes there's an advantage to having broadband as well as 
the time zone difference. I was the first bidder and Charles sent it 
to me immediately by EMS. It's a gorgeous lens and I didn't realize 
it came with the original box and warrantee card. It arrived last 
night and I immediately went over to Fujiya Camera and bought a Leica 
R lens to Canon EOS body adapter.

I took  the lens out on my lunch break today. The results were very 
nice, I think:

I agree with Doug Herr that this lens weighs a ton and a half. That's 
my only complaint. Oh, and Tina must have eagle eyes, I had problems 
focusing it accurately.
