    Yes, we're still refering to the Leica 50mm lens...... just highlighting a few more "useful" features of the lens. It is an "extremely versatile" lens. Hee hee

    how about the radioactive "glow"? The early leica lenses had radioactive elements that gave the photosa supposed "glow", this is one of them...
