The 50mm collapsible Summicron has absolutely no problem when  
collapsed on the M8 body. The clearance from the end of the collapsed  
mount to the M8 shutter is about 1/2". I don't know about the 90mm  
Elmar. But if you have the lens just measure the distance from the  
mount to the end of the collapsed lens. The M8 flange to shutter  
distance is about 31/32". If the collapsed lens is 3/4" or greater  
from mount to end I probably would not collapse it when on the M8. In  
any case I have a few collapsible lenses with adequate clearance but  
always keep them extended as leica recommends. The 90mm macro which  
Leica says is OK does not extend pass the lens mount at all.
