Hello, I recently purchased a used 28mm Summicron from the Leica Store in Soho. My first Leica lens, so in my excitement I don't really notice a potential issue with the lens. The numbers on the aperture ring don't line up center with the white dot, they fall a little to the left. I don't think this is normal, but is it a problem?

I'm planning to get a 28mm Summicron for my M-A. Of course the camera's viewfinder has frame lines for 28, but the lines are a little difficult to see at times if the hood is being used. I'm thinking of adding a brightline finder for quick shooting. The older 28mm Leica finders are difficult to find in good shape. The Zeiss 25 28 finders are optically great, but can be fragile. So the other option I'm considering is the current Leica 21mm Brightline finder with the brass housing. And then to use the frame lines in the finder meant for use on the M8. Given the 1.33 crop factor, my understanding is that these lines should correspond to a 28mm on a full frame camera. Any experiences or thoughts?
