There's a 24mm Summicron now?  Or do you mean 28mm?

If you mean 28, I fear I have to agree with Hoppy the Pusher.  The 28mm
Summicron is mighty.

The newish 75mm Summicron seems nigh on invincible as well, but there
are still very very nice things about the 75mm Summilux on an M8.  I'm
almost positive these are 75mm-Summilux snappies:
