Are the ROM versions of Leica R lenses worth the premium over the 3-Cam versions?

So I know the ROM versions are a little newer than the Leica R lenses with 3-Cam mounts, but I've found on ebay that generally means it's several hundred dollars more expensive.

I was told that ROM lenses are generally easier to adapt? Is that true? If only plan on using Leica R lenses on an R8 and not adapting to digital cameras, will the 3-cam lenses serve me fine?

Finally, should I always buy the lens with the highest serial number?

Thanks!
