    Just purchased a 50mm Type II Summilux to to with my new(used) M9, I noticed some fogging behind the front element and successfully disassembled, cleaned and popped it all back together with no parts left over!

    Made a trip just South of Seattle yesterday to the LeMay Car Museum, too many subjects, too little time.
    Having only one lens, even a very good one IMHO, proves challenging in a car museum, my next purchase better be a wide angle!:rolleyes:

    Hmm, the photo 9 should not be brown, but a red Jaguar, I believe an XK120

    it's a pretty deep red...towards maroon on my screen. It's beautiful. THe one I'd most like to own out of all of those beauties. Nice set!

    Yes, you are correct, I would say deep red leaning towards maroon. They had a nice convertible version there as well.

    I don't mind shooting the car, as long as all other methods of peaceful negotiation have been exhausted...
