Hi Didier,

No doubt you are right. However, I have to say that in this particular 
situation--walking around and snapping quick pictures in bright 
sunshine--I doubt that I would have had my Summilux wide open. More 
likely at f4 or f5.6, similar to the Sigma, especially since the maximum 
shutter speed of the M6 is only 1/1000. But the bokeh would still have 
been better. I have since bought a couple of fast Canon 
lenses--1.4/50mm, 1.8/85mm--which do have quite nice bokeh too, but 
again, in the situation at hand, I probably would have had the aperture 
set to something smaller than wide open.
