I did compare the front projection of both of these lenses with a
current 50/2.8 Elmar collapsed and the difference was negligible (I
can't remember these measurements now but it was very, very close), so I
would assume the 35 Summicron would have to fit this case also. Unless
earlier Summicrons were bigger of course- I only measured the current
joe b.
