.  Technically, the lens is evidently not a Summicron-M but a
Summicron, and you might suggest to the seller that it should fetch a lower
price, if it has been advertised as the M model.


Which brings up a question I have. What is the difference between a
Summicron and a Summicron M? I have a 35/2 Summicron in M mount s/n 2324***.
Erwim P's site has a page describing characteristics of M lenses and that
number is called a Summicron - M on his page, but, not on my lens. Wie
