Or maybe I confused you by following up in the Summilux thread talking
again about the Summilux (where my contribution was the ISO-1250
handheld Summilux picture of Trent the DJ), after there'd been some chat
about the new Summicron (with that insanely detailed beer-eyelash-lady
picture from Hoppy).

Summi-this, summi-that.

And I think that's basically true in this case.  Except the latest and
best (up to f/2, where the dial stops moving) isn't the fastest.
