hi folks

I'm new here...!

Acquired my Leica R kit not so long ago from another listmember, who
me this list existed.

I'm contemplating purchasing either the Summicron-R 35/2.0 , PC Super
Angulon 35/4
or even the Ukranian built Arsat 35/2.8 tilt-shift lens.

If I had to choose one of three, which would be the most useful lens to

Specifically, does the 35/4 support automatic diaphram and exposure modes?
How useful is the 7mm shift ? I hear it's quite limited.

Would the Arsat 35/2.8 tilt-shift be more useful as it has more shift , and
tilt to boot?
How does it compare optically ? (ok pls, I know Leica lenses are better...
some objective observations pls).

Optically, how do both the 35/2 and 35/4 compare at f4.0 (I ask because I
use 35mm lenses mostly between f4 and f5.6) ?
