    I got my first M8 and have been using a 28mm Elmarit which I think is a perfect all around lens for the M8 but wanted something a little tighter.Since I'm thinking of eventually getting a FF M9 or possibly MM in the future, I picked up a 50mm Summicron-M
    I'm really happy with these two lenses for the M8 right now.
    ....a couple of first shots with the 50 Cron

    Nice looking images. Is this Summicron V3?

    I got the IV,V version. I originally thought that it was coded but it wasn't.
    I ordered a $15. flange from China and coded it myself.
    Now the lens actually show up in the EXIF information, I'm happy now. :)

    test show taken yesterday in town.

    I love my 50 Cron (v5), even better on full frame.

    a FF Leica is on my list next year. It will change the FOV on my 28 Elmarit and 50 Cron....kind of like getting 2 new lenses for the price of an M9 or possibly an MM...:)

    The M Monochrom is magical. Mine is paired with an M5.
