    FWIW, I just finished an article called, "Lens Primer - The Basics" that goes into a whole lot of just that; focal length, aperture, hoods, how they're named, etc. It's written from a rather basic point of view and will be followed up by additional articles that get more advanced. This is part one, or "Lens 101."

    If it has already been mentioned in the thread I apologize. I just wanted to mention http://nemeng.com/leica/. And watch out some FSU lenses have 39*1mm. threads whereas the Leica spec. is 39mm*24tpi. Slightly different but usually works. I have an Industar 61 L/D that I like in addition to my Summicron. Oh, and watch out for fakes on the auction sites http://jay.fedka.com/index_files/Page367.htm. I like my Leica better than my Fed, but it doesn't have the red hammer and sickle

    Noctiluces would be the correct pseudolatinate plural. I rather like my (accusative singular) f1.0 Noctilucem.

    WAY too much wankery over there. Some good info for sure, but it tends to get lost in the more numerous, pointless nerd threads -- "what kind of bicycle does a Leica user ride?". (an actual thread!)

    Stop twiddling oneself. Get out and shoot. /rant
