Dear Akhil,
Interesting to hear of your experience. I have my Summilux ASPH and
Summicron ASPH here in front of me with my CLE and both lenses mount and
focus without any difficulty. Perhaps anyone buying a CLE and 35 ASPH
lenses should try the combo before buying but my experience is that my
ASPHs work fine,  older 35mm lenses both Summicron and summilux which I
owned experienced the same problem you describe.
Best Regards
