There is a version of the 35mm/f3.5 Summaron that has eyes that are removable 
in the same fashion as the DR 50 Summicron. The 35 can be used without the 
eyes, but must be focused using the distance scale on the body of the lens as 
the lens focusing cam is regulated for use only with the eyes. Also, the 35mm 
lens mount brings up the 50mm frame lines.
