    I don't see why you'd want a 90mm f1 lens on a rangefinder, anyway. With that little depth of field, I want an SLR so I can see if I'm sharp or not. If you stop it down enough to be sure the rangefinder will have you sharp, you might as well get a cheaper lens.

    It's a Leica. If the rangefinder says it's in focus, it's in focus.No need to stop down.

    I'd have to see it to believe it with a 90mm at f1. I pull focus for a living and that's not much to work with unless you're doing what the navy probably was and focusing 30 feet and further a lot. At 12 feet if a person's eyes are sharp, their ears aren't. At 7 feet, a head and shoulders portrait length, you get 2" total depth of field. It sounds like a very, very expensive way to miss focus a lot to me.
