Hi, Dan
I assume it's a 50 1.4 Nikkor in LTM.  If so, God help the 
Summarit.  Mr. Summarit's in for an ass whipping like it never 
had....I owned a Nikkor and SEVERAL Summarits (each time I thought
they can't ALL be this sorry......) Like the idiot I am, 
I sold the Nikkor.  Shoot 'em wide open - preferably with light
sources in the picture.  Then do the the same with a Summilux
(borrow one if you're cheap/poor like me)  If the Nikkor's clear 
and the coating clean, PULEEEEZE honestly report your results 
here on the group (I dare ya...)

The least you coulda done is choose a shootout that's REASONABLY 
fair, i.e. a late 28 2.8 Canon LTM vs. ver 1 28 Elmarit.........
