While not at the level of your Zeiss and Pentax, I really like my Galoc 7mm Ortho.

Since this photo was taken I have gotten all the SPLs save the 4 mm, and added a Leica ASPH to the stable.Herd Thinning will happen some time this year, although I am still open to more Super Monocentrics.

Interesting that no e-mails in those days. We wait days for some answers! I remember that company!
