Thanks for the lesson. Actually it's weirdly affirming....

I always had this weird feeling that lenses in the '50's (in 35mm terms....) seemed slightly off to me---sorta "tight".  I didn't know why, but the few times I used something nearer 40, the better it "felt" to me visually.  I could never explain it, and people I mentioned this to looked at me funny....

So, your comment actually has made me feel better today (I woke up felling cr@ppy...).
