i'm a relatively new convert to leica and the m8, but can already see from this thread that the temptation to find, try, own and use everything with a red dot or M bayonet is quite strong.

 

It is, but luckily many of us (and I'm being serious here) couldn't afford to do that and so had to make do with buying one lens at a time, and so we got to build up the lens collection slowly and get to know the individual lenses. That IMHO is a positive thing.

if you could only have 3 lenses, which 3 would they be?

 

I've cv 15, 28/2.8 asph, 50/1.4 asph and a M8 and is still quite happy :-)

28 Summicron ASPH

75 Summicron ASPH

and...

50/1.2 Noctilux "ASPH" - tho it's very hard to choose between this and the much more modern 50/1.4 Summilux ASPH, which is a truly great lens.
