    Once more I have to cast my eyes aside from this thread and dave's 70hr & 90 hrsw. Lens lust is a terrible affliction.

    Hehehe Graham,
    You know I'm just Dante's pawn.

    Here is an interesting comparison that shows just how much this new 90hr-sw is designed for image circle and quality, not size. f/5.6 90hr-sw on the left, f/4 100hr-s on the right. And that 100hr-s does not need an adapter; that is its full length.

    Stop chasing gear, start chasing photos instead.

    Good choice. The "buy once" strategy helps navigate Dante's Inferno a little bit.

    Oops! I always thought the strategy was "buy one of each" in Dante's Inferno.

    Sorry, my bad.

    Yes, pretty much that was the driving motivation.
    I decided in favor of image quality at the expense of convenience, which is obviously a factor with the needed extender.

    Time will tell whether overlooking the convenience turns out to be a frustration that I can't deal with. But at this point I feel confident that I've made the right choice.

    Thanks again guys, for your candid advice and guidance.

    with the 32HR and 90HRSW, if you are left wanting for a "lightweight" setup, the new SK60XL would be a great fit - large 120mm IC, super sharp, small, no extender, and fits nicely between 32 and 90. Now that you've acclimatized yourself to Rodie prices, the SK price won't seem that bad either
