So what would be your "deserted island" lens? The one lens you'd want to have with you - should you ever get stranded on that deserted island... ;)

Of the lenses I have, it would be a tough call. Most likely the Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. Though the Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH would be a very close second.

I think though, if I had a 35 FLE - it would stand out as The One.

For me, I think it would be the Zeiss 35/2. Sometimes one might think it was glued on.
Salve!

If I was literally stuck on a deserted island then I'd probably go for a 1000mm hope of seeing something that would help get me rescued ;).

If it was a choice or I had to pick one lens to live with, it would have to be the Summilux 35 fle (of my current lenses the 35 cron asph)

I would have to choose my 28mm Summicron. I use it more than any of my other M lenses.

But then again... On a deserted island, I woludn't be doing much street photography which is what I use the 28 'cron for most of the time.
