I'm with Paul and B.D. the 35 is a disparate object from a 50.
I often use a 40 on my Rollei 35 and find that real change from the before
mentioned above.
Not splitting hairs here!
But you're gonna get less distortion from a Leica M 28 or 24 then you are from
the same SLR lens.
But I still say get the 35, you will thrive with a Leica M 35.
The Summicron ASPH to be exact.
Been out shooting with mine all day!
Takes a licken and keeps on tickin!
