I find the Summilux to be commendably sharp even at f/1.4.  Needless
to say, it is not going to be quite as good as at f/5.6, but if you
need to shoot at f/1.4 to make the picture, your decision is already

Check out: for some
examples of photos made using a late model Summilux.

Good luck.

Subject: [Leica] 50-M Summicron vs Summilux

Is it worth the extra money to buy the latest version of the 50mm-M
Summilux over the Summicron? I want the extra f-stop, but do I lose
sharpness at the wider apertures?
