Dear Byron,

I agree with you in liking the 35mm Sumicron with the square plastic lens
hood. However, I have and like the latest 50mm f2 with the built in hood
very well also. I think it is a better choice unless you insist on dropping
the camera on the hood.

As I said last time, I'm most interested in the focal lengths 35/50/90.
For the 50mm lens I'm really tempted to find the older style summicron
with the clip-on round lens hood. This is the lens I rented, and I was
very happy with it. Given my experience that and with the 35mm hood,
I don't think I'd want to go for the new 50mm with the built-in hood.
