Here are a few shots taken with my new (to me) M9 in Waynesville, Missouri. Nothing special, just walking around before dinner.

All shots at ISO 160 with minimal post and a 3 stop ND filter on the lens. Most are wide-open.

Very fun. A place that begs for a walk through if you have the extra half-hour or so. :)

The 50mm cron non-apo is in the list of my second lens for CL. Wainting for more input under this thread. The pictures are very nice, while people say it is usually not very sharp at f=2. is that right?

Just remember Luo, a 50mm lens on the CL (APS-C) shoots like a 75mm does on a M240 (full-frame) ...

Your 21mm f3.4 will shoot about like a 30mm lens on an M240 or one of the Sony A7 series cameras.

Thanks, Carlb. ZM 50/2 seems a alternative, considering its IQ and compactness. PCMAG prizes it highly.:clapping:. I will look for some photos of it on web to do further research on this lens. It is not very urgent for me to get the second lens for CL because I am using a ZF2 35/2 on Nikon D7000. It was orginally mounted on the D700. However, I have not used it very often for its heavy weight of this combo. I combined it to the D7000 and shot the tea pot in my office yesterday. It is sharp indeed even at f = 2. I may take this combo along with the new CL as the second lens. While, two cams seem a burden for a street shooter. This is why I hope to get a second lens for the CL.
