Believe the M optics are the same as it's contemporary LTM (Red scale)
The M version brings it's own ergonomic challenges with setting the aperture, but you get used to it.

The Emar was made for decades, came in many mechanical variations, including versions for the earliest fixed-lens cameras.

Elmar 5cm F/3.5 version 1, produced 1924-1951, 5 elements in 3 groups.

I love the early version because of the number of lenses/groups and nickel version it's such a beautiful good looking lens. I enjoy putting my finger on the lens when I am changing apertures!
