They are all cult lenses.... difficult to predict how they will perform, as
individuals.....  Whereas newer glass, produced in quantity is a pretty good
bet will perform consistently great.....  Personally, Fuji and
Schneider/Sironar are my favs.....with the  Fujis being the sleepers.. great
optics, low prices....

Vick.. yes, post Kids is a good time to shoot LF....
