threads like this are awful. The SA is already on my "dream list" of lenses. I know, in my head, that a modern Zeiss is more practical, and I'm basically a one-lens photographer (2/35 Biogon) anyway, but I just can't stop myself from wanting one of these SA's, no matter how irrational it may be. Almost every photo I see taken with it just has that "something" to it -- lovely photos in this thread, all of them!
Anyone have a f3.4 SA they wouldn't mind putting on "extended loan"?? (I am not picky as to color -- black, chrome, either will do just fine!) j/k
