  1. How does the 21-35mm Vario-Elmar compare to the current 19mm? I know there is
    a 2mm difference in the short end but Erwin in his review compared the zoom to the
    very old 21mm f/4 Super Angulon and the consumer Canon zoom which doesn't tell
    me much.

    I suggest you ask Erwin direct.
  3. The second version of the 19mm is a masterpiece and one of
    my favorite lenses. I have played with the 21-35mm zoomlens
    and am also impressed but feel the prime is superior to this
    zoom.. However, the versatility of the zoom must be taken into
    account when deciding on a purchase.
