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

Erik, we should meet this year and shoot a few rolls together, don't you think?

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.
