Hi Lluis.  Glad that you overcame your email problems. As you may recall, I 
had to deal with that a couple of months ago.

In this shot, I was primarily looking for definition at infinity, and 
distortion, if any. Because my camera crops the edges of the image, there 
appears to be no distortion, and the definition is what I would expect from 
the Leica Elmarit.

Thanks for looking.
