Why? The 75 Summilux is a special lens. I can't imagine not having it now.
It has some of the quality of the Noctilux that people talk about. You see
in available light pictures details you just don't see while looking at the
scene. Maybe not to the degree of the Noctilux, but when I shoot with the
75 Summilux is very poor light, it's really makes the picture sing.

The bokeh of that lens is wonderful. And in the 70-180 I might add. I've
never used the 90 Summicron M, but the 90 Summicron R has a wonderful bokeh.
