Plot thickens here as well. I never got along with the 50 slux asph reg. ergonomics. I have quite big dislike for focusing tabs and the ASPH was also quite stiff to focus. So it made it hard for me to do the small, fineer focus adjustments. It made me miss my old 50 pre-asph slux quite a lot.

So opportunity landed my way.. My own old 50 slux pre-asph emerged for sale at a local 2nd hand camera store. I also missed a 90mm lens and I happened to love elmarit-m 90 that used to own.

This shop had the next best thing, a hexanon-m 90 in a nice shape.

So I contacted them and managed to manouver a deal to exchange my 50 asph to the pre-asph slux and the 90 hex. Didn't have to think twice and jumped on it!

So I now have my favorite 50 again and also a very nice 90, which according to internet gossip equals the elmarit-m.

Looking forward to shooting some more film!
