The 50 summarit was sharp compact thats is similar characteristic to the ultron line. The ltm 35 ultron had a pleasant signature imo that had a good balance of actuance  and nice oof rendering.

Id be great to see to a 50 ultron similiar to the ultron 35ltm character.

YES! :)

I would love to have a modern 50mm Summicron collapsible. Same look and feel as the ca. 1957 collapsible Summicron with modern optics and without the infinity lock.

Please, please...PLEASE Cosina, make it so. :)

and make it close-range too. With a tangle dent when exiting the 70 cm mark.

The infinity lock of some lenses is nice (my Summicron 35mm v1) but most old lenses lock very hard (the LTM standard). In an M-mount the detach-force can be low.

So many 50mm lenses to choose from. . .

VM 35/2 Ultron I and II = Summicron 35mm f2 ASPH I

Heliar Classic VM 50mm f/1.5 = Summilux 50mm V1 or V2

potential VM 50/2 Ultron = Summicron 50mm V4 or V5? Yeah count me in

Yeah, a Summicron v4 that does not flare  at a fraction of the price of a Summicron would be very much welcomed.

Kinda like the Zeiss 50mm Planar ZM - a better summicron at a third of the price. Yes, please!

Cosina Viogtlander have a rather large selection of M mount lenses to choose from now.

I only shoot 35/50mm so only really aware of that lineup.

For 35mm we have the F1.2/1.4 Nokton, F2 Ultron, F2 APO and F2.5 Skopar.

For 50mm we have the  F1.2/F1.5 Nokton, F2 APO and more recently the F1.5 Heliar Classic. 

Are you interested and/or you think we will see an 50mm Ultron? 

The only benefit to my f1.5 would be having the focusing tab. But sure why not. More choices. 

the f1.5 Nokton is awesome.

This is fun. If available again I’ll put in on the wish list for Santa Claus.
