Subject: Lever on 35mm Summicron
From: Edi Weitz <>

I consider buying a 35mm Summicron for my Leica M4-P. I would love to have
one that has the little lever at the bottom that is used to focus the lens.
My questions are:

1. Do all 35mm Summicrons have this lever? (My 50mm Summicron hasn't
although I've seen many new 50mm lenses that have one.)

2. If there are 35mm Summicrons without this lever - what are the
differences in price (and perhaps performance)? (I want to _use_ it -
therefore I don't need a "mint" one.)

Thank you in advance for your help.

Bye, Edi.
