Hello Rick, I purchased my M6 chrome in March of 1996 with the old style 35 Summicron chrome. I couldn't get a proper shade or cap for the lens and traded it for a newer one (not aspheric) which takes the neat little rectangular hood. I bought a cap for the hood ($35.00!) and lost it within a month. So now I keep the hood on all the time with no cap, and this makes it very handy. (I have a uv filter on the lens.) Of course if I decide that I want to shoot without the filter, that's a whole other thing.
