Thanks! I was worried that I'd either lose the cook to a burned out 
highlight or the shadow detail.

One of the nice things about the older lenses is they have a longer 
luminance response, they catch more things in the shadows and 
highlights, although that means they are low in overall contrast. The 
Summaron I took this with dates from about 1959 -- it's 44 years old!

For equipment fondlers (like me), I have photos of the Summaron 
mounted on my M3  here:
