I do not think you will be missing anything.  I have the 35/2 Asph. and it is
excellent.  Ted can attest since he saw a print of mine (family sitting around
the fireplace) shot wiht it wide open.  I have used the 35/1.4/Asph. but have not
had extensive experience with it.

Also, in case you haven't already, check out Erwin Puts website:  He
reviews the Summicron and compares it to the Summilux.  He thinks the Summicron
is better.
