My contribution is second row second column. As it was meant as a body text face, and I do not believe too much in typographical detail anyway, It has a clear rhythm, supported by the seris. I show a text sample: left part without any kerning, right part (partim) with "optical kerning" in InDesign. More on the evolution to this typeface on this Flickr set. Maybe listen to some music at it .
