good used lens.

I would suggest a 2.8/35 Jupiter-12, a Russian clone of the Carl Zeiss Jena
Biogon (first version) of even specification.  These can be had for $100 or
so in the US.  They are in LTM, so you will need an adapter to mate them
with an M camera, and an auxiliary VF if you are using an M3 or late M6
with the higher-magnification VF.
