Thank you, István, I'm now mainly scanning prints (split grade printed). Somehow the scans get more power then.

I find more and more I miss my good old 50mm Collapsible or at least the look of it. But I don't miss the collapsing part so I am going to pony up big time for a mint 50 F2 Rigid...wow have they gone up in price.

Buy it when you can.
I think Leica old lenses will increase their prices, taking consider that the popularity of mirrorless camera which encourage people to try different lenses.

I searched for quite a bit before I settled on a mint- with a CLA by DAG at Igor Camera for just under $1,300. I think this is the only combination of optics and M3 I will need from here on out.

Just acquired an M3, Rigid Summicron 50 combo. The M3 dates to 1965, the Summicron to 1959.

I'm not a fan of infinity locks, but the one on this lens doesn't seem too obtrusive/obnoxious. I might be able to get used to it.

Do users of the rigid like the infinity lock? Have any removed it and been happier?

It gives a better grip when changing lenses, no need to turn the focusing ring to the other end.

Surely there is some coma in the Summicron rigid 50mm f/2.

How would you overall characterize the performance?

Low contrast but sharp, with little distortion and mechanically very solid?

Is that coma: thne oval rendering instead of circular? No big deal.
MOre important is keeping contrast in the low lights.

No, small round spots (in the corners of the image) are rendered like a comet.

It does not bother me the least.

As long as there is no barrel or pincushion distortion i am happy.
