Depends on your styly of shooting. If you are a 50 mm person I would recommend a used and coded Summicron 35,  or a Summarit 35. if you like to go wider the Elmarit 28 is a terrific choice, higly recommended for landscape photography.


Don't forget to add the essential IR cut filters (B&W 486).

Forget about high-speed lenses - unless you are into razor-thin-DOF photography (and a longer focal length is usually more effective than a faster lens) or extremely low-light (Not an M8 forte, but exposing generously will give excellent results up to ISO 1600 nonetheless) , the slower lens is noirmally the higher-quality, smaller and cheaper choice.

A Leica M, BTW, is more of a hand-held camera than a tripod one by concept.
