It pays to be careful with the collapsible lenses to avoid collisions and damages. I haven't heard a discussion of what works and what can't be collapsed. I have a 50 Summicron that looks very close and assume a old 50 Elmar would not work as it protrudes even further.

There is nothing to be afraid of with collapsible lenses. The lens will not hit the sensor when collapsed, only a baffle around it. A simple rubber band will prevent the lens from collapsing too far and you will get the best of both words: completely safe operation and small size. My impressions of collapsible Industar-22 are here: http://forum.mflenses.com/industar-22-t48796.html
