Subject: Re: 35 F2 Summicron ?

Which lens to buy is highly dependent on how you plan to use your camera.
Personally, if I had to use only one lens it would be the 50 Summicron with
the 35 Summicron running a VERY close second. (For me the 28 Elmarit would
be a distant third.) The 35 Summicron is very tiny and makes the M6 very
fast to use and pocketable as well. The 50 is a little larger and not quite
so pocketable.

Enjoy your new M6!
