Subject: [Leica] 50mm Optical Question

Does anyone know if Leitz (or Leica) have ever used the "Sonnar" optical
design for any of its 50mm lenses?  Or have they pretty much stuck with the
"Tessar" design or the "Gauss" design?  Does the "Sonnar" type design have a
"look" (I hesitate to say bokeh) that is distinct from the others?  Just
