Subject: [Leica] which 35mm f2??

I'll second that.
I used a Canon 35/2 lens, the last type (and as good as the contemporary 
Summicron according to Deschert) and certainly didn't notice a difference 
when I changed to a Leitz lens. I don't suppose I'm hyper critical, more a 
case of looking at the picture rather than the lens performance.

Don't forget about some of the other guy's older screw mount lenses.
For years I made a decent living with an old Canon 35 mm f 1.8 screw mount
on one of my M-4's. Some of that type of glass is still available at better
than old Summicron prices. I still use it on occasion as well as a Nikkor
85mm f 1.5 that is a great piece of glass. You get good negs. and at the
same time you can save a little each day for the ASPH.
