90/2.8 Elmarit-M 11807 with film
I have this lens and have always had great pictures with it; a few on digital (a few because I didn't use it much with my M8 not because others weren't any good!) and lots on film.
I am entirely happy with it but am just curious why it was discontinued some years back. Presumably it was felt that the at the time new Apo-Summicron 90/2 ASPH was a league ahead in some ways.
Could it be that 90mm just isn't a seller any more - along with other longer than standard lenses? I know they brought out the Summarit range but that didn't stop Leica offering top range speed choices for shorter lengths.
I wonder in what ways apart from extra f stop the Apo 90 is better than the Elmarit. Does it have a different, Mandler era look by comparison?
