    Hi

    I picked up a 90mm ELMARIT-M the other day. Not too sure if I like it or not but here are a few shots from today again from around the local area.

    I had the Tele-Elmarit M, a fine lens. But when it came time to sell a 90, I kept the collapsible Elmar 9cm F4. Just preferred the rendering of it.
    Lenses have character, and we cannot be expected to get along with every character that we meet.

    Could not agree more, its a nice lens but seems to have very little contrast and just very dull. I can fix it in lightroom so its not too bad, I think I am just used to Zeiss lenses from using them with Nikon and Fuji.
