HI!

Just out of curiosity, have you used the 100/2?

I find the LoCA of the 100/2 to be not much of a problem . In situations where it might be (not most), you just stop down a bit.

Under some conditions, at f/2, you will see it at high contrast interfaces. Markedly decreases by f/2.8.

In any event, I recall seeing example from Photokina comparing the LoCA of the 100/2 and the 135/2. The latter had less.

BTW, Many beautiful photos on your web site!
