Doesn't matter. With my first girl starting college next year and the sticker shock of $36,000 a year, my Leica buying days are emphatically over.

When my Leicaflex SL (1969) broke last year, I bought a Canon 135 f2 and a cheap film body to replace a Leica R 180 f2.8 and a 90 f2. Other than missing a smooth manual focus and a real microprism screen, I have to admit that the Canon 135 is as good as any Leica lens I've ever used.
Take care,
Tom
