The 60 Elmarit is head and shoulders above even the black version 2 65 Viso lens. In fact the 60 Elmarit is a better all-around lens than the 50 Summicron-R if the speed isn't an issue. As a bonus, the 60 Elmarit will cost you about the same as a black 65, which then needs either a bellows or the short-mount helicoid plus the Viso. IMO it's a no-brainer if you've already got an R body.
