    Sean,
    I use a 50 and a 35mm lens on my M6TTL. the 35mm Summicron ASPH is about the sharpest lens i've ever used. the f1.4 ASPH is supposed to be equally good but about a thousand more for one fstop of speed!
    the view camera and the rangefinder are a good combination. my two primary cameras are the Leica and my 5x7.

    While I briefly owned an M3, I had the 50mm f/1.4 Summilux and it was an absolutely gorgeous lens. Beautiful image quality, tack sharp every time. Mine had some brassing on the lens barrel, so I got it for dirt cheap, too. Deals can be had. And as for size and weight, any RF lens is going to be comparatively small and light, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Gotta wonder, is this the oldest APUG thread?? In the last 10 years I wonder how many times this very same question has been asked?

    Your post is numbered 1,430,737 on the APUG system.

    Sean's post starting the thread is numbered 94 on the APUG system.

    Not the oldest, but awfully close
