Keep away from lever focus lenses, and you shouldn't have any problems with clearances.

Good looking photos as usual.

Thanks PF

I thought about getting an M4-P or M4-2, and I would probably be very happy with either. I did want a self timer though, and this M2 just seemed perfect for me.

Hehe, ya after months of reading up on the various Leica M bodies, I'm pretty up on the pros/cons of each finder and their framelines. 28mm on an M2 worked well enough for Henry Wessel
