The latest version of the 90 Elmarit is definitely better in all respects
(except at f/2). I own and use the 90 Summicron, and love it, and would never
get an Elmarit. I shoot a lot at f/2. It's tack sharp wide open. Either way
can't go wrong. But for absolute best image quality, I believe the Elmarit is
the better lens. (The latest version that is identical in the M and R systems
