Subject: [Leica] Outfit Opinion's Are Utterly Useless!

Am I the only one who grows weary of these "What do you think is the best
(fill in the blank)?" questions?

Every Leica lens is different and serves a different purpose.  Every Leica
lens is the "Best" for someone and some purpose.  Every photographer has her
or his idiosyncrasies and preferences.  From five different lenses Terry
forms two combinations and asks which we would each prefer.  I for one would
be far more interested in why Terry chose these kits and what HE has in mind
for HIS photography and what lenses HE would choose and why.  Not that I
don't enjoy endless and repetitive threads on the best combination of this
and that, mind you.

I would like to ask your opinion about a M-series outfit.

If cost is not a concern, which combination will you prefer?

1. Summilux-M 35mm 1:1.4 ASPH
    Summilux-M 75mm 1:1.4

2. Summicron-M 35mm 1:2 ASPH
    Noctilux-M 50mm 1:1
    APO-Summicron-M 1:2 ASPH
