Dan-- thanks, the lens came in this morning. Its just like my 80mm, and just as clean. I dont know why people are leary of these 25mm mount lenses (mebbe they think only Leica mount is good ), they are crystal clear and can produce better quality prints than alot of others on the market. Did I mention, this thing looks like it was never mounted, pristeen and clean. Thanks pard, I think I'll get'r mounted up and break out some 35mm negs, gonna give'r a whirl.
