Subject: [Leica] 21 mm Elmarit fringing

I don't quite understand.  I have been using  a 21mm Elmarit for a 
couple of years and I never have had
a problem.  All my transparencies and prints have had no colour fringing 
or vignetting.  It is much better
than my previous Super Angulon which was stolen from me by a fast 
talking flatlander from Pacific Beach.

BTW, my Elmarit is the pre-Aspheric version with no coding. It is a much 
superior lens than the C-V
21mm that I had been using in the interim.
