NOW, you tell me! :-) Good thing I'm broke...

BTW, Congrats on your replacement  lens. Mine was a Christmas present to 
myself and it is outstanding. I can see why Irwin flipped over it. If it's 
any consolation, only five 50 ASPH's have come into North America since the 
Christmas holidays in Germany. A friend of mine just got one of the other 
four. These things must be hard to make!

Best Regards,
