There is an extremely positive review of the Summicron-R f/2 35mm
"somewhere" on the Internet.   It would seem the optics engineer behind
it s highly respected.
I have found a brief but highly complimentary review of the 35
Summicron-R at, URL:

I am very pleased with the performance of my 35 Summicron-R and I feel
sure you wouldn't be disappointed with it. However, I haven't had the
chance to compare it with the 35 Summilux-R.
