I pretty much only shoot with a 35 on my M so I was going to go with the 65mm lens and add the 150 in case I need something to get in close.

I'd appreciate any insight anyone can give.

Take care,

Had the full M9 thing some time ago, digital is too expensive, you loose so much $ every year. So I got a Fuji 670W to start with. Just like a big Leica, but does 6x6 and 6x7. Its marvellous, and I agree with you about the 24 or 36 exposures. 12 is much more convenient. Even if shooting alot during the day, you might want to change your film for night-time.
