The other day I wrote, "I've been so insufferable about it ["it" being a C/Y 35mm ƒ/2], such a broken record, such a pain in the ass, that if I don't buy the RX1, I fully expect a ragtag band of former Contax reps and Zeiss lens designers and Kyocera product planners to show up on my doorstep and beat the crap out of me."
Well, this morning I heard from a retired former Contax marketing manager, who, I was surprised to learn, reads TOP. "I was delighted to read something of my own history in your column," he said. "I was the one on the receiving end of your nagging and pleading over that Carl Zeiss T* 35mm ƒ/2 lens."
He said he passed along the request at Contax R&D meetings, but to no avail.
I was a little worried that he didn't disavow the impulse to show up at my door and beat me up! (I remember him as a great guy, so I'm sure he wouldn't.) I was also pleased that he said my post "was true in every respect."
Nice to hear from old acquaintances.
