If you absolutely need the speed I would give the Zeiss ZM C-Sonnar 1.5/50mm
a try. I am very happy with the Zeiss 4.5/21mm and 2.8/35mm C-Biogons on my
M6 and the 1.5/50 is on my list as my one high speed lens.   I also have the
original postwar CZ 1.5/50 Sonnar on a Contax IIIa and love its
Otherwise I agree, the 2.0/50 Summicron is hard to beat as a standard lens.
