Very nice distressed petals.

Is this with the Elpro?

I just got one of these Leica Macro 100mm Elmarit lenses myself.  Can’t wait to try it!

Yes, a great lens - especially in Michael's capable hands.

Also now quite expensive on the secondhand market  -  on a par with the legendary CV 125mm lens.

I remember when I had it it had a greenish hue as compared to the CV Macro Apo 2.5/125mm - did you notice this too Michael?
Easy to fix in PP later of course, just wondered...
