Seems like Cosina is intent on building the "classic" fast lens lineup i.e. 35, 50, and now an 85.

Given the crisp snap to focus of other Noktons (and even the older Ultrons), this 42.5 should be a dream to use!

If one really wants to fill in the range, the LTM and M lenses are another possible route. They won't be f0.95 however.

Now they just need a fast 14mm (considering most old rangefinders with a standard magnification finder had 28mm framing options I'd consider it a more suitable classic trinity with a 50mm than I would a 35mm)

My Bessa has framing for 35, 50, 75 and 90. If you go over to the Red Dot forum, you'll mostly come across fast 35's. However, given the new Cosina 21mm f1.8 M (http://cameraquest.com/voigt_21_18.htm), I could see a fast 28 in the future. They already have the 12 &15 Heliars, slow but highly regarded.
