[rollei_list] Re: Apologies to Richard Knoppow

Well, I for one may put it on my "reading to make me fall asleep" pile but I
would not waste much time in reading about antiquates lenses. I mean what's
the point? At least Shudderbug (as you call it) is a bit more current and we
may learn something about composing a photo. Now if Dechert talks about
lenses that are current like the Canon 70-200mm F2.8L zoom I may be
interested, but honestly the only antique I have any interest in is my
Rollei. I do not even like older cars.
