Subject: 35 mm M lenses

       Thank you Leica users for the information on M5 versus M6.With
all the discussion on 35mm versus 50mm,I was surprised that nobody 
addressed  the issue of which 35mm M lens is 
preferred,Previously,Iasked the users views about their experience with 
the Summicron in comparison with the Summilux at moderate apertures.
Any opinions?
        The foam gasket at the film window is a serious problem with
the R3 as well as the R4. Leica from Northvale readily mails two replace
ment gaskets free of charge.It is amazing that a more lasting solution
has not been offered by a firm of such outstanding reputation.
