Mine is just not that sharp. I would go with the 90/2.8, and I plan to eventually replace my lens with one based on all of the glowing comments I hear about it on this list. I use to have the 70's version of the 90 Summicron and I found it to be an outstanding lens. It was up to the quality level of my 35 and 50 Summilux lenses and much more worthy of the Leica name.
