The 80 f1.4 is very close to the M-75. I like the 35 f2 though some 
don't. The 50 summicron is generally the same as the M of the same 
vintage. The 19, 100 and 280 I have the more recent look nut the 400 
and 560 f6.8 are fantastic, have slight curvature of field - but that 
doesn't matter for 3-D subjects with a reflex and are beautifully sharp 
in the centre with lovely boke. I only use mine wide open.
hope this helps - I love the R as well as the M, but not as much.
