Okay, I will. 

But as a user of the second most current non-ASPH 35 Summicron, and then
the Summilux ASPH, I can tell you there are many other factors
performance-wise that make me prefer the newer lens. Sharpness isn't all
that important if no other performance criterion isn't better. I use my
lenses wide open and at f/2 more than the average user, though, so my view
is biased in that direction. ANY 35 Summilux or Summicron can make
wonderful pictures, in the right hands.
