    These videos demonstrate pretty well:

    I have an M3 and an M6. The M3 is ideal for 90mm and usable for 135mm. The 35 goggles are a nuisance on the M3 so the 35 Summicron will probably go.. I use the M6 with a Voigtlander Skopar 2.5/35. I think that the M6 is more suitable for 28-50mm. The M6 framelines a a bit too small for the longer lenses, in my opinion. It all depends upon which lenses are more important to the photographer.

    I love my M2, the 35mm frameline is wonderful. Now to get a better 35mm lens, at present I'm using a Summaron. Not bacd, but not a Summicron.

    Hi

    A pristine f/2.8 is better than any of the crons except the Asph, and I'd not bother with the Asph unless you need the f/2 frequently...

    Of course if you like boketh and flare... YMMV

    Only 1? While I used to have a pair, sent bubba off to a new home, one is enough to keep me grinning and my over abundance of lenses vying for attention.
    One Leica you ask? Easy.

    CLA'd M3 .. best Leica body ever! (if you prefer 50mm)

    when you prefer 35mm lens, M4 is a classic.. cheaper would fit as M4P

    I don't have any Leica, but if I were to get one it would the M6, good combo of modernity and price. If money were no object, then it would be an MP. I shoot slide film a bit, so a good meter is critical.

    I have an M2. The 35mm frame lines made me choose this camera over the M3. I finally decided on a CV Nokton 35/1.4. It may not be a Summicron, or a Summilux, but I'm sure liking this lens.

    like I said, m3 for them who prefer 50mm, m4 and m2 for them who prefer 35mm

    enjoy of your camera

    myself, I use Summicron a lot. Fantastic lens!
