All right, I'm confused.  What is the difference between the Aspherical and the 
Asph?  I've seen lenses with both inscriptions on the front, but had thought 
Leica just shortened the engraving on a subsequent production run.  From 
postings in this group I get the impression they are actually different 
lenses.  Eastland, inter alia, only mentions the Aspherical.  If these lenses 
are indeed different, it would be a masterpiece of confusing marketing.

Also, I, like others, would still be interested in a thoughtful comparison 
between the f/2.0 Summicron and the f/1.4 Asph/erical, if anyone has the luxury 
of having both.

Best Regards,
