Subject: [Leica] Best 6-bit Coding for CV 21mm ?
From: robert.rose at (Robert Rose)

There are several possible codings for a Voigtl?nder Color Skopar 21mm  
1:4.0 lens:

Elmarit-M 21mm f/2.8
Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4
Elmarit-M 21mm f/2.8 ASPH
Summilux-M 21mm f/1.4 ASPH

Does anyone have any advice which is the best choice?  The Tri-Elmar  
seems like a good choice, except that you have the extra step of  
setting the focal length on the screen every time you attach the lens.  
The lens code chart indicates that Sean Reid recommends the code for  
the Elmarit-M 21mm f/2.8 ASPH.
