I used to think so too. Now I'm less young and, I hope, less unwise and have read this: http://web2.ges.gla.ac.uk/~gpetrie/P...y_fulltext.pdf Talk about damning with faint praise. If really really serious lenses like that one were made so badly in the FSU, what hope is there for the rest?

These days I have great trouble making myself chase lenses. There are two lenses on my wish list and one on my wild fantasy list. I don't need the two, probably can't use the one. I tell myself that I have what I need, am in fact divesting.
