you're right, i apologize. got focal length dyslexia for some reason. too many equivalency computations you have to run through nowadays with all the sensor sizes. in my long ago world of film you had many film sizes but very few lenses with any formats other than 35mm and 2-1/4, so it wasn't that difficult to keep everything straight. [g]

yeah, i've only ever seen that lens in books and catalogs although i once tried to use the leitz system. i found out that their very vaunted rangefinders weren't and thus the illusion was shattered. i saved up for years to finally buy into that system and it crushed me to find out their reputation was all marketing and myth--or at least it was by the time i got there.
