Nicely done Roger and Frances.

(If only I were a rich man...)

I imagine Stephen will be pleased to see the R2 as one of the illustrated 'lens users.'

Got a link? Shutterbug isn't available here in the UK. Or is the article going to be published in B&W Photography too?

http://www.shutterbug.com/ is the link, but I didn't see the current issue's articles on the site. There is a Roger/Frances piece from the May issue.

Do you mean the Summarit article in the recent publication? There is also a recent review/article on these in the UK's B&W magazine.

I subscribe to Shutterbug here in Australia (direct mail from the US). Turns out to be less than 1/2 the price compared to the imported news-stand/newsagent prices. Been doing that for the last 2 years now... fun magazine to read, but not that in-depth about "real" photography - rather focused on digital and new cameras/gear/gadgets/accessories.

Anyone in Canberra wanting to borrow previous editions are more than welcome to PM me.

OMG - Did I write Summitar insead of Summarit?

I did, I did.

My apologies to all.

(The mind is the second thing to go.)

Dear Rick,

Thanks for the kind words.

Frances reviewed it for B+W (and has just bought the 50/2.5) but it's rather different from our joint review in SB. There's also the 'first look' under 'Reviews' on our site.
