Elmar 90



Hi all, can someone let me know eventual quality differences between Elmar 90 f4 four lenses and Elmar 90 f4 three lenses? Thanks and regards


The three element 90mm Elmar perform like a modern lens. Hence the price.


Never shot a 3 element, but the 4 is very good from5.6. I also read the corners were improves with the 3.

The 3 is overpriced for users as the cv 90 apo is very good at 1/3 the price and the new 90 collapsable is up to to current standards for a little more.
