Title: The Hubble Constant from the Gravitational Lens B1608+656

  We present a refined gravitational lens model of the four-image lens system
B1608+656 based on new and improved observational constraints: [...]

A combined gravitational-lens and stellar dynamical analysis leads to a
value of the Hubble Constant of H_0=75(+7/-6) km/s/Mpc (68 percent CL;
Omega_m=0.3, Omega_Lambda=0.7.

It's important to note that originally the same group claimed that H0 might
be as low as... 61 km/s/Mpc, see: Fassnacht et al. (2002) ApJ, 581, 823
