Great set with the Color Skopar and the SBOOI!

The Color Skopar 50mm f/2.5 is IMO the best 50mm LTM lens around.

Finally I've found a nickel Summar with perfect post war coated lenses. Nr. 219429 (1934). Looks very nice on a Leica III black and nickel.

Ow that does sound like a lens I certainly would break my 'no more lenses for the Leica' vow for

You're right Garage boy....but my camera came without a lens & I had the skopar. $500 (approx) with caps & without haze is more than i care to tie up in a focal length i don't really use much. But nickel on black does look great.
