Updating.

I now have a 40mm CLE and a few 50mm ltm lenses.
That's it for RF lenses.
Feels great to be set. The only lens I might ever try and re-aquire is an ltm nikkor or 35mmf2.5.

I'm fairly dull - only have a 35mm, 50mm and 90mm. I might pick up a 28mm at some point but I'm in no rush...

35mm and 50mm is all I need.
Perhaps the new Voigtlander 15mm is worth trying.

Nothing wider than 28 or narrower than 135. And hope I don't get those missing FLs

I'm using Nikon rangefinders, and based on lenses available, I'm missing the 28 which I had and sold, since I have CV 21, 25, and the Nikon 35, the 28 wasn't used enough to keep.
I also now have the ability to use my Vivitar Nikon F mount 19mm 3.8 thanks to Amedeo Muscelli's Nikon S-F adapter, and am hoping to find other even wider lenses that can be used with it as well.

"I like having compression in my left hand," said the vicar to the actress...

For a long time I worked with only two lenses: 20-35 two-eight and 80-200 two-eight. Had a 50 in case I needed more speed. After I went digital Nikon eventually caught up with a 28-300.

In a pseudo/true rangefinder? Had 'em all. Booshwah. Settled on 28/35/90.

I have 28mm, five 50mm, two 35s and a 90mm. I used the 35mm once (the day I bought them) and the 90mm several times. I shoot the 50mm and the 28mm every day. Next and last will be the 21 f/3.4 which I need on the project and will get used excessively.

Regards,

Boris

I've had many in the past, but I now have just 35 and 50. I'm feeling that's really all I need.

Maybe 21mm one day to make things interesting...

Presently I have only 50 and 90 focal lengths for RF. I did have a Canon 35/1.8, CV25 and CV75 but traded them away. I will get a 35 and may replace the others too.

So much better.

I only use 50mm and 35mm lenses, but many different kinds, brands, vintages, speeds etc.

15mm and 18mm are too wide for me; even the 21mm could yet turn out to be a poor match for me, and might get sold.
Oddly, I find myself without a 35mm lens, having sold several, and then stumbled across the opportunity to trade my last 2 in on an M9-P. Gotta save up and replace them....

Just picked up the WATE to cover me on the wide-end. Besides that, it's the common 28-35-50-90.

Since I only have fixed lens RFs, everything except 35mm, 38mm, 42mm.

Update: Since I've now acquired a CL, I can subtract 40mm (Summicron) from what I don't have.

As for Leica RF lenses, I don't own any lens that is wider than 35mm.

On the list I don't have 15, 18, 21, 24/25, 40, 75, 85/90, and 105. But I do have 100 and 200 LTM lenses plus I can adapt any Canon FL/FD or Nikon lenses I have such as 24 and 18mm lenses.

I also use Canon FD and Minolta SLR lenses with ltm adapters for 7.5mm, 19mm, and 21mm with my RF cameras. I use longer SLR lenses only with my M 4/3 cameras so that the focus is correct.

I own a 28/50/90. I use my 28/90 about 5% of the time.

Just added a 21 SEM to a 35/50 pairing. Very, very impressive optic.
Depend on a Ricoh GR for 28. Toying with the idea of 75; in my Nikon days, 70mm on my 24-70 zoom was used a lot.

40/50/90 here. Saving up for a 28, which is one of my favorite FL in my SLRs

I would like something wider than a 35, but I'm perfectly happy with my 35/50 combo right now. I hardly have the time to shoot, so another lens means another lens collecting dust.

25/35/45/50 are used as often as I can

I'd probably like to get an inexpensive 90mm lens but I'd be more likely to add additional 35/50 with different characteristics. Whilst I love using a 19mm on my Contax139 (SLR) the inconvenience of a separate ( and expensive) viewfinder stops me lusting after anything wider than my CV25 for my M2 or LeotaxF

I only have a 35 and 50, but if I were to complete my little collection, I would have the 28 also, and that is all I need and nothing else...

I have an M2 and a R2, and a 35/50/85 combo. The 35's a Color Skopar 2.5, that I'd love to upgrade to a Nokton 35/1.4 at some point. The 50's a Leitz collapsible Summitar f/2. My only leica glass, if you don't count the viewfinder of my M2. The 85's a Canon F/2 Serenar and is wonderful in every way. All are LTM on M adapters.

I am heavily invested in a Pentax 35mm kit, and don't have tons of money. So I decided to limit myself to what the framelines of my m2 would support natively.

Just a 35, a 50 and a 90mm for my M4.
I have enough trouble focusing the 90mm, therefore I don't want anything longer, but a 15, 18 or 21mm would be useful.

I usually shoot with a 21-35-75 or 35-75 kit and don't even own a M mount 50. However, I'm starting to like the 50mm-e on my XP1 and am considering getting a 50 for the M to use when I only want to have one lens with me. The big question is, which one?

24mm Zeiss, 35mm Summarit, 50mm Version III Summicron, 75 Summarit, but no 90mm.

Really like the 75.

I still have 15/21/25/50, but it's the 50 95% of the time. It just seems the right lens for my Leica RF.

I now have the following focal lengths for my 35mm rangefinder cameras:
21, 28, 35, 40, 45, 50, 90, and 100.

I have 65mm & 90mm lenses for my medium format rangefinders.

I do not have, nor do I need 15, 18, 24, 25, 75, 85, 105, or 135mm focal lengths for my 35mm rangefinders.

I wouldn't mind having some of the slr lenses I have for my RF. Particularly the 21mm, which I have for my OM1n. Or the 85mm, which I've had for OM as well as for Nikon. I have a 35 for every camera I own though.
