Is the world ready for - or does it even want - a standard digital SLR camera system?
Tamron's 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5.
Elicar had 600-1200mm and 800-1600mm f/10-20 manual-focus lenses, the former close focusing to 1:3 and the latter to 1:4. Cosina showed a remarkable collection of lenses. For Nikon-mount rangefinders there was a 28mm f/3.5 Voigtländer SC-Skopar, a 50mm f/2.5 SC-Skopar, and an 85mm f/3.5 S-Apo-Lanthar. A chart indicated which ones would also be usable (within the depth of field) with Contax rangefinder cameras, and at what distances and apertures. A 35mm f/1.2 Aspherical Nokton for Voigtländer M mount made its appearance, as well as a 180mm f/4 APO-Lanthar SL lens, the latter focusing to 1:4 in a wide variety of SLR mounts.
There was activity, too, in medium format. Besides the new Fujinon lenses listed in our report on the Hasselblad H-1, Contax had a 45-90mm f/4.5 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T for the Contax 645 and, stuck away in a corner of a show-case and missing from any press release, a 45mm f/3.5 Technoplan-T3 shift/tilt lens inscribed "Limited Edition for the Contax 645AF." No Zeiss name on this one. Mamiya unveiled an amazingly wide 26mm f/4.5 lens for their 645 camera and an ultrawide 43mm f/4.5L lens for the RZ67.
