It will be a...

Imho they should maker a cheaper, lighter black version.
Possibly one for the e-mount that focuses closer and no rangefinder coupling.

The Voigtlander is better made than the Hawks (the infinity seems spot on, so the lack of adjustment is not a problem) if you can afford it, it is the best option.

I guess the problem with the Canon LTMs could be the filter size (if you use an UV-IR filter)

Other than that they are very good (the 50/1.4 being superior to the popular 50/1.8)

I think the best handling lens is the 35/2 LTM (very small, quick to focus, falls in the fingers nicely), but the two most popular, the 50/1.8 or the 50/1.4 LTM are also excellent.

The 35-80 is actually not that heavy or big, especially for a 2.8 zoom, but for best handling the Camera Grip 1 is recommended.
