Subject: [Leica] IMG: My Summicron-R 50 Arrived

My KEH BGN Leitz Canada Summicron-R 50/2.0 from 1978 arrived today. A few 
exterior rubs, etc, but the glass looks great and everything functions as it 
should.  I shot some flowers, etc, but was curious about the ability to grab 
details with this lens.

I was impressed by the detail in this image, as well as some others I made.  
Looks like a keeper!  Now all I need to find are an E55 UV filter and a 
front cap that will fit over the built-in hood.

Comments and critiques welcomed.
