Michael - the 35 mm lenses, which match to the M3, have goggles,
which allow to view a 35 mm angle thru the M3's viewer.

In Germany, the price of a 2.8/35 Summaron is around DM 850, USD
470, and of a 2/35 (chrome) Summicron around DM 1.200, USD 670,
both inlc. goggles.

At higher f-stops, say between 5.6 and 11, both lenses are appr.
comparable, while the Summaron suffers a little at lower f-stops.
