I'm a slut with my 50's (my preferred focal length), but if I had to choose one it would be the Zeiss Sonnar, because while the focus shift issues can be frustrating, it's so good wide open, and so flare resistant, that it would be the one I'd pick. With my M9.

I'll stick with either of my fixed lens options: My Konica III with its 48/2 Hexanon, or my Vitessa L 50/2 Ultron.

Olympus Pen FT with 38mm f1.8. Yes, I know it is an SLR, but it has the same form factor and size as an RF, and I use it the same way I would use an RF, just with better reliability. The thing is a tank.

Guess it's my R3A with the 40/1.4. Since that is what I have. Thinking about it, I'm satisfied.

RD1s with a 40/2 m-rokker. This mix tics most of the boxes.

I am an SLR kind of person but rangefinder-wise it has to be the Leica IIc w/ Elmar 50 f/3.5.

M6 + 28 Summicron which is what am out with this morning. Probably would be smarter to say my M9 but my M6 is my favorite user.

One camera and one lens. Well that would be my Leica IIIc with a 5cm f/3,5 Elmar.

But I have taken it a step or two further. The bezel is bent back on the Elmar far enough that the f-stops can not be adjusted. The aperture is stuck at f/8. Since the camera is now 60 years old, and I doubt the top shutter speeds are correct, I shoot only Ilford Pan F (ISO 50) in the camera at 1/250 of a second.

So I am one camera, one lens, one f-stop and one film. Very restrictive some might say, but on a sunny day, the set up works fine.

M6 Wetzlar and a 50mm ZM Sonnar, a wonderful combo.
