and the M9! My only point of reference Charles. lol. Well, a 75 Lux may well be better in some ways than a cron of equal age. I'm not as sure about vs the current generation APO ASPH Cron. It may be, and maybe you have used both. For me, honestly, it doesn't matter, I look at the results from what I have in my hand, and if I am happy with it, then that's good enough for me. Plus there's budget. I just bought a 35 and 50 Lux this year. honestly, the Cron wasn't even in my game plan, and then it showed up. I was able to buy a NEW 75 Cron for 3K with a new Leica filter on it, and that included shipping. It was one sweeeeeet deal. I scrimped and craped for that 3K to do that deal, even though it wasn't in budget, the deal was to good to pass up. No regrets in fact, I am SO happy I was able to do it. I planned for a 75 all along, it just wasn't going to be 1 month or less after getting my 50 mm, which I also got a decent deal in used. I bougt my 35mm new before the price increase. I beat several price increases, and saved some on mint used. That's the way to buy if you can, haha. I wish I hadn't bought my 35 when I did, I could have got a used one 2 months later and saved 1K. Oh well, I didn't know. It would have been same source as my 75.
I can imagine what you are saying is true on the 75 FL vs the 90. I admit some of my 90 work was rather much pot luck, I wasn't sure if I was hitting focus or not until I get home and checked it. I won't shoot my V3 90 to much. But for a fairly affordable lens, it is fun to play with the longer focal length some.
