Awesome stuff, Jim! GGB (#1) is right up P100 alley with its complete lack of linear distortion. Okay, I don't feel so lonely now. Wayne, the SP100 is blisteringly sharp: even at f/11, the 1Ds was color aliasing like crazy on that laptop's glittering surface. Yes, the lens is very scarce right now - nothing on eBay for the last year. Contax bellows (T/S capability) are going cheaply on KEH, so you might scoop one up in preparation for the eventual SP100 arrival.
Here is one for bellows, but without bellows. And here is one with bellows.
Concerning the P100, I still have it. It was my favorite lens in the Contax times, but now I have the MP100 and the main reason to use the P100 is a sentimental one. The new lens is simply better where it matters most, i.e. the plane of focus, and virtually identical elsewhere. I am still fond of the P100 and will not sell it. I suppose the shaved fin puts pressure on the price anyway.
