I was surprised to see the highest-performing 50mm of them all omitted from the list! The Heliar 50mm is the reason why I got a rangefinder camera, and after two years is still the only lens for my Leica M3 SS. The ergonomics are a bit quirky at first, but it balances beautifully on the M3, collapses to a really small package, and the results are both flawless and characterful (contrast not over the top, really subtle and smooth out-of-focus rendition if that's your thing).

Those are some really lovely shots! Thanks for sharing. I especially like #1, #2 and #4.

As for the Heliar, I'd have to agree - it's unique and really good. (I've added this thread to the index).

I rarely shoot colour film, but these were some images taken with the Heliar (on Portra 400VC, scanned on an Epson V700):

Some great shots from a greatly under-appreciated lens
