What's your point in asking that kind of question? Are you trying to say OP is an idiot? It is clear that he loves Tessar regardless what's the reason. Now if you don't know what's the reason go ask him in a polite manner. And if you hate Tessar and love your ricohflex you don't need to reply.
Tsk...tsk...tsk some people are really grumpy here. I don't know if their cat stole the camera.
Are you a forum moderator? No, so what is your point and what is your contribution to the post? Saving some bandwidth applies to others, not you?
