    I have got one, too, it's pretty close to my favourite and often called "the japanese Summicron". If it is so difficult to find an affordable one I will put it into the classifieds section here, together with my Canon VT deluxe and a 1.5/50 Zeiss Sonnar in LTM - I simply never use them, owning a 35 and 50 M-Summicron.

    My favourite lens is the last one that I used. At last count I had ~20 favourites.

    I'm with you, Paul. i have the 24mm f2 and I love this lens. The focal length is just perfect for the way I see, and it doesn't cause over-the-top distortions like wider lenses do.

    For the record, I have the f2.8 model as well and I am equally pleased with it.

    Probably the one I have on my camera when I need it, however the one that is always in the kit and usually mounted on a body is the Olympus Zuiko 85mm f2. Not a lens, but I usually have a set of extension tubes in the kit to expand the possibilities of any lens. Bill Barber

    Out of a room full of lenses by several different makers, my all-time favorite is the Olympus OM Zuiko 90/2.0 macro. My next favorite it a old Summitar 50/2, which is more or less permanently mounted to my Leica.
