    I had remember this as a nice lens and it is. I still have some show prints made from it in the '60's. I love the fact the M8 lets us use older lenses which have different characters.

    I couldn't agree more, although at this point, a version IV pre-ASPH 'cron is my only older lens.

    Nice John! Indeed, the fact we can use this older, sweet glass on a first digital camera is awesome!

    Cheers,
