      The lens barrel on this one actually pulls straight out rather than twisting. And yes it does pick up those fingerprints, but I didn't really feel like spending an hour trying to polish them out for this photo. Plus I don't own those white cotton gloves I would need to handle it. :o)
      Sour grapes... You're funny!

      Thank you! Always good to hear from you!

      A beaut! I've seen a black Tahbes in an auction before but not in full metal like this. Having seen yours now, I shall have to bid like crazy if ever i see one listed.

      Beautiful example of good design!

      Just looked at the example on your link, surely you could polish this up and it would look as good.

      That's true. Maybe I'll do it if I ever get the display case I need for my favorite cameras. As it is, they're mostly in boxes. :o(
