Jack - have you shot with this lens?  I have and sold it soon after buying 
it.  It's wide open performance in real world use in my opinion was 
horrible.  The first and only time that I've not liked a CV lens.  A real 
dog - again in my opinion.  I think some other folks on the list have had 
the same experience.  Maybe it was my sample of the lens?   On the other 
hand my CV 35/2.5 pancake is a favorite of mine - go figure.
