  1. I recently picked up an APO Telyrt-R 280/1.4 adapted to my SL with the Leica adapter. I have reported in another thread that I have run into some issues with light leakage when taking 20-second or greater exposures using a 10-stop ND filter. I have isolated the problem, and found it to be the Leica R-Adapter-L, and not with the lens mount, and I have discovered a simple and inexpensive solution to eliminate the light leakage. So we can put that aside for the moment. The Telyrt-R is a highly touted classic that tops the MTF charts in performance, and due to its relative scarcity (approximately 2,000 manufactured between 1993 and 2009), it is a lens that should prove to be a good long-term investment. Current prices for mint copies run $5,600 and up. The truth is that this is not a lens I wish to lock up in a safe to fund my grandson's college education a few years from now; I want to take it to the beach, and to the woods, and to the mountains. To shoot with it and expect consistent performance with minimal frustrations. My primary use for a long lens is for landscapes, and occassionally for shorebirds. And when I get really serious about shooting wildlife I pull out my old Canon 1Ds III and the Canon 500mm f/4 and fire away. Here's my question: Telyrt-R 280/1.4 or Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280? I have the 24-90, which is the finest zoom I have used in my many years of photography, and from what I read, the 90-280 is even better. On the one hand, there is the beautiful classic, manual focus Telyrt that begs for a tripod, and on the other hand, there is the newer, autofocus zoom with IS. Hmmmm? My Leica friends, I would appreciate your input. Thanks, Robert
