As of today I have only two lenses. They both are Summicrons. One is the current V5 and the other one is the Rigid. I sold all my gear and kept these to use on my two cameras: M9 and M6. I love the 50 summicrons so much, it did make sense for me. But I wouldn't buy two 50 summicron V5s, for instance. They are close to each other but different enough to justify keeping both. Gotta love the rigid cron, it's crazy good.

Of course there are, which is why I am changing lenses.

Get the second one. You are shooting with film and digital, and if having the same lens seems like the right thing then just do it. If another 35 comes along that seems like it might be a better fit on sensor or film you can try it, but you would likely be set for a while, or for good, as is. For all the thinking about signature that goes on it is something that is completely over the heads of anyone not part of our geek culture. I suspect one would find half the non geeks unable to understand the differences focal length bring to an image.

You also miss shots when you blink, which is why real photographers tape their eyelids open.

And there are no photo opportunities behind your back either...

"If it's over 100 feet from the car it's not photogenic." Edward Weston.

Another quote (mostly correct this time) from a famous photographer justifying missed photo opportunities.

Status update.

M4-2 is still under repair.
I sold all three 50mm lenses I have adjusted for M3. And I broke 40mm lens mount and spare one is traveling from Australia. No lens for M3 for now.

My M8 was sold on ebay under best offer to one guy from nearby North York, but he forgot about payment. The M8 is on hold until end of June. I was hoping to use those money...

But I have 40mm lens on Olympus Trip and 40mm lens on Smena-8M ! Plus, 50mm 1.5 on trusty FED-2. All three works. Just for some very strange reasons I can't bound with the Trip 35, it is too P&S to me

Two weeks later...

I fixed, rel-lubed Rokkor 40 f2 and tried it on M3 this weekend for street photography. Printed on 5x7, no cropping, this night. Framing is not ideal, but acceptable.

My most used lens prior to this was Jupiter-3 and Industar-26M.

Using just 50 instead of 35 helps me to understand what I want. Same filter size, short focus travel (90 degree) and focus tab (real one).

Stay tuned.
