I agree that most of the leica lenses reach their optimum at f4 or f5.6. But for a lot of reasons, most of the street photographer like 400 iso films (TMY of TriX - no flame). Then, outdoor when the sun is shining, you get f11-1/1000. What is the solution ? Hide your beloved Leica most of the daytime or wait for a M7 with 1/4000 (and btw 1/250 sync speed) - but as quiet as the M6. So I think the performances of lenses stopped down are an important issue, even if we know that physical limitations prevent them from being too sharp. F.J.
