"The f 2.8 Sonnar lens on the Rollei 35S is critically sharp. Modern

use without some practice."

I agree.  I hope I didn't leave the impression that there was anything wrong
with the Sonnar.  It was just my technique, and when I corrected that the
problem disappeared.  But if you want to use a 40mm in low light the 40mm
Summicron on a CL is the way to go.
