    An Apparition
    While walking among the food stalls in the local market where I am making a series of images for a story titled: MARKET OF HUMANITY, I came across this food stall.
    The seller, who was sitting on a small stool, hidden by the produce, suddenly stood up. I must say that I was startled. By the suddenness of the apparition and by her looks.
    I often return to the market. I have not seen this woman since.

    The true very lens for a Leica newbie is a 50 summicron (not APO).  It's magnificent lens. And it permits to learn focusing, exposure and compose the frame.
    After some months you can navigate with very pleasure in other focal lens.

    You are unlikely to regret buying that lens. It will please you on any Leica M-body.

    I’m grateful to all who responded (really fast response here too!). My very first camera was a Yashica rangefinder, but I have not shot a rangefinder in 45 years. So I’m a little worried about adjusting to a rangefinder again, when I’m over 60 and now wear progressive lenses. 
     
    I have a long love affair with 35mm with much experience shooting the X100 series. Recently I picked up a Ricoh GR III (28mm equivalent). 
     
    I’ve used a variety of adapted lenses on M4/3 and Fuji X-H1 and prefer character over sharpness. 
     
    there is a M10 for sale near where I live, and I hope to get with the seller and get a sense of handling and focusing before spending so much on this platform.

    Welcome, rmcnelly!
    A lot is going to depend on what you prefer to shoot, how fast you want your lens to be, and whether you prefer sizzlingly sharp or a touch slower with a little character. 
    To avoid bank account shock I recommend either a 'pre-loved' Leica or one from the Voigtlander range but until you give us a little more to go on there are so many options and possibilities that it's difficult to suggest.  Many responses are likely to be along the lines of "my favourite lens is ..." but that might not be right for your purposes.

    This Digilux 2 picture shows the  remains of an old coaching route, from London to Bath, passing over the North Wessex Downs, near Devizes in Wiltshire, UK. In my lifetime there were cottagers living nearby, however they have now departed and their dwellings dismantled. It is now the domain of walkers. This view faces West, towards Chippenham. Picture converted from colour to monochrome in Lightroom 6, to evoke the sense of history.
