The ranking by quality AND weight heaviest and best quality to
lightest and least quality is:
3.6
3.5 - 4.5
4
3.5 - 4.8 (actually made by Cosina)

I have the 3.5 - 4.5 and it takes very nice sharp and contrasty pics,
and the size and weight is a real advantage for travel and other
occasions when you do not want to be weighted down.  It is barely
bigger than a 50mm.
