I find it an ideal travel lens - it came across with me to the LHSA 
Spring Shoot in Victoria BC, and got a lot of use on my M3. I've no 
complaints about its definition, colour rendering or bokeh - they all 
seem very much in the Leica mould. It certainly beats lugging the 
90/2 'cron around, though, as others have remarked, the latter is a 
wonderful portrait lens. I'm looking forward to comparing it with the 
85 Summarex.......
