Using the Leitz Wetzlar Summitar 50mm f/2 (Leica) is good. 

Took a trip to Houston Camera Exchange the other day, found this cool Summitar for sale and took it home. Mounted it on my M3 and M Typ 240 and made me giggle, this thing is fun!

  

So went walking around and took some photos, I can say that this lens is sharp at f/4 and glowy at f/2. If you apply some sharpening to the DNG files, you can get it to look very sharp. Only thing may bother you is the center that looks weird in some images at f/2 but may add to the feel of a vintage lens.

Summitar at f/2, when shot in closer distances it creates a weird center that reminds me of a vortex

Summitar at f/2. Missed the focus on her eyes and front focused on her hair, you can see is still sharp in the middle corner, really not bad. I Like this lens and its vortex in the middle.
