Craig, get any 50mm f/2 R lens that has 55mm filter threads and you can't 
go wrong. You need a 3rd cam lens (but you don't need the first two cams, 
and late ones don't have the first two). It's a wonderful lens. I'm sure 
you'll love it. Also you might want to get the 35 Summicron (f/2) R 
instead. It's a bit more flexible for shooting in tighter spaces, and they 
can be had for bargain prices. relatively speaking. Again, stick with 55mm 
filter threads and you can't go wrong. Just make sure it's a third cam lens.
