    Many thanks.

    My copy is a Pentax K mount (without "A" setting) but I'm sure it would have been available in other mounts.

    Yeah, and wide open is good for focusing if your lens is on an SLR. Seems like a useful tip. I will try to follow this practice with my older lenses.

    I have only heard it specifically in relation to a few Leica lenses, the 50mm Elmars and the original 90 2.8 Elmarit, and it is because the diaphragm is immediately behind, and very close too, the front element, and because of the lubricant used by Leica on the diaphragm. I heard this from Malcolm Taylor, renowned leica repairman, when he overhauled my 2.8/50mm Elmar. I have never bothered doing it with any other lenses, and none have suffered, some for nearly 50 years of ownership.

    I've experienced hazing with 3 Leica lenses, all of which are Summicrons. But I've often used those lenses in tropical and arid climates and I've used them a lot (as in daily), which certainly speeds up the process. However, there are other reasons to keep lenses at infinity and wide open, particularly for range finder shooting techniques.

    It is an excellent lens. I have the YUS version. Crisp and sharp as a new razor blade.
