I would pick the Summucron 50 v5. To me, the Summicrion 50 is just a such well balanced lens in terms of size, weight and optical performance.

I would go for the Leica 50/2 Rigid. Very close in rendering to the Elcan but sharper off-axis.

TY So I think I already have that covered with my Summicron DR, right?

Yes, they have the exact same optical formula. I believe I shared a comparison between the Elcan and Rigid on this thread. If you're looking for a slightly more modern look, the current 50/2 Cron (version 5) is also a great choice, as suggested.
Both Elcan and Cron v5 focus down to 0.7m.

I already have the v5, as well as the DR. Was just wondering if there was any reason for me to get an Elcan apart from GAS. Which frankly for me is the only reason!
I really like the Elcan size, but I also have the CV Color Skopar 50 2.5 which is v small.

The Elcan wins on price and size. It's one of the smallest 50/2 lenses. It's also very well built and has a large focusing tab.

It's also available in LTM for Barnack users which is why I picked up a copy. Are there any Leica lenses that match or have similar rendering to the Summicron DR/Rigid in LTM mount?

There were some Rigids made in LTM, but they numbered only in the 1000's and are rare and expensive today. Similarly, there was a special edition LTM run of the version 5 Summicron released in Japan in 1999.

I've been really tempted by the Speed Panchro II 50/2, and am awaiting the 75/2.

That being said, I'm having an ethical dilemma, because these lenses are being replicated down to the lead(/thorium/whatever else) in the glass elements, which are known hazardous substances to the workers polishing and assembling the lenses. (It's why RoHS basically killed entire legacy lens lines like the R and Contax lineages.)

After seeing photos of the workers without any protection on them...

The pics you saw were the assembly workers. Not the ones making/grinding the lenses. Those I am sure wear more than tank tops and flip flops.

You shouldn't have an ethical dilemma though. You don't need this lens...

A couple of questions... "you" wrote:

The lens features 50mm f/2 Speed Panchro II optical block house in Type Two "Rigid" 50mm f/2 body.

So is this the exact same lens optically as the SPII? Just in a different case?
Is it the same length as the SPII? Which is a very long lens for a 50mm f2
Why does the SPII have a built in filter and this one does not?
