Picking a 50 for M2

Hello, a sometime lurker & first time poster here.

I’ve had a lovely M2 for almost a year now and have been loving it with a Voiglander 35mm colour skopar, but I would also like a 50mm.

So the age old question, which one to pick? I mainly do outdoors available light photography, landscapes, buildings abstracts in b&w only. I’ve narrowed the choices to;

A new Zeiss Planar (very good value with 70 cash back currently) and available in silver!
A used Elmar-M collapsible available for around 600+ at the moment.
A used v3 Summicron which go for about 800+

What would you pick and why? I just can’t decide!
