The standard suggestion (and a very good suggestion it is) is to look for a used "pre-asph" 35mm Summicron.  This is the version right before Leica came out with the ASPH version in 1997.  These tend to go for about $1000, and are one of the lenses that made Leica's reputation (one of the canonical Leica lenses, as it were).  Read about them on Stephen Gandy's web page:
