    Forgot to mention until now, when kalkadan mentioned 35mm, that I was referring to the 50mm Summicron V4. There certainly is a 35mm Summicron V4 but I've never used one. Supposed to be pretty good in some respects.

    For the moment, I've got a Jupiter-12 lens, which fits quite nicely on the camera. Tomorrow, I'll get a Planar 50/2 !!

    I spent some time playing with the camera, and really love the feeling of well thought mechanisms...

    I like my M4, it is one of the smoothest cameras I have used. I prefer the 35mm Summicron, it is a beautiful lens, and quite compact. As mentioned, the M4's viewfinder is best suited for 35mm lenses. For 50mm lenses I prefer an M3.

    My M4 has a lot of miles on it, but is still a great camera,

    Nice camera, Sangetsu!

    I'll post a pic of my M4 with Planar (chrome finish for both, and both "mint") when I have time. I really enjoy this camera, it's a great complement to my 'Flex

    The Jupiter 12 is a fine lens. Just be careful with potential flare situations, unless you want some flare for an effect.

    thanks for the tip. I still have to develop the first films from the M4, in fact I first have to finish rebuilding the darkroom...

    I like the Elmars as they're nice a portable. The 35mm VC is supposed to be one hell of a bargain in the RF world. In the end, I don't think you can go wrong with any of your options!

    Looks like I'm turning a bit "lenses collector", as I added a Nokton 35 "Classic" to my kit... now I have 2 35, 1 50 and 1 90.

    Still wondering if I'll sell the Jupiter 12?
