As I hear it the one to watch for is the T-Noflexar (3 elements).  My 
earlier Novoflex experience was with the two-element model.  IMHO from 
limited experience the T-Noflexar is optically quite good, rivaling the 
two-element f/6.8 Telyts centrally and with a flatter field.  The older 
two-element Novoflex I used to use did not produce the contrast or 
color quality I see in the Telyts and T-Noflexar.  The Telyts have a 
considerable advantage in the handling department.
