I had quite a few on his list - rather, there are few I never used. None that I 
deeply regret. I would have liked to see some Leica glass in there though. And 
from my own memory, my contax had a lens that said on it, the alternative was 
yashica then. Maybe it was sold as contax over somewhere ???

Philippe, happy with his current 35mm f1.4 AF non-stab fuji which delivered as 
well as the nikon AF 50mm f1.4 and the manual summicron 50mm when I tested them 
against one another a couple of years ago. All sold but one ;-)
