Interesting points of vue, probably I'll try to transform the viewfinder
this cost less than 300?, I like different bodies to carry different
types of film for my needs. 

A interesting possibility is restore the M3 viewfinder, look at:

The other thing I was looking for was a 21/2,8 Elmarit, the previous as
the actual ASPH, I ask me usually myself if we should be a quality or
perfectionists fanatics, and my own answer is NO, why?, General quality
level of Leica lenses is very good, for me the better use for a Leica M
is not pictorial photography, the ideal use is the street, the live
photography, for this one is not necessary perfectionism, just a good

When I have buyed my Elmar-M 2,8/50mm, Kit said me that it's not so gut
as the Summicron. Well, I already have the Summicron, and what I
appreciate of this lens is his small size, easy to carry almost in the
pocket. The quality of the pictures I've take was satisfactory.

Sure! my Tele-Elmarit M 2,8/90 mm is not so perfect as the 90/2 APO, or
as the Summicron 90/2 R, but I appreciate it's small size and it is also
E39 like 50/2 and 35/2. Sure! The 28/2 ASPH would be a winner, but for
the moment with the Tri-Elmar 28 I'm very happy, except that's f4.

As I have said, Leica standarts quality are very high, is not always
necessary have the perfection, at least is that I think.
