Hello Everyone, First time post to this great forum I've lurked a while, obsessed about this and that, but finally decided to pull the trigger and bought my first L camera, a nice (metered) MP of which I am the second owner. I'm looking for a 50mm Summicron and see that the newest body style, the one with the built-in hood, has a weight difference when choosing chrome or black and that it's due to the brass body of the chrome lens. I don't see any information available regarding the older, tabbed version with the same optics. I see that the lens as a whole weighs less and is a little smaller physically, but nothing on wether the black is lighter than the chrome body. Is this tabbed version, in chrome, also made of brass? Is there a difference in weight? If there is I guess it might not be worth mentioning, but it made me question the body composition, wondering if the chrome lens is anodized aluminum or brass. Any info appreciated. To be sure, I'm talking about the lens version in this photo. Thanks so much.
