I just made a composite photo of the same section of six photos taken  
with six different Leica M and LTM lenses on my M8.
 From top to bottom the photo strips represent shots taken with the  
following lenses at f2 only. All of the lenses had their lens hoods  

Leica Summilux ASPH (current)

Leica Summicron (current)

Konica Hexanon (last current)

Leica Summitar (very slight haze at edges, coating very good)

Leica Summicron ( slight haze, slight cleaning marks)

Leica Summarit ( very slight haze, very slight cleaning marks)

I rank the order of the lenses with best on top. The top 3 are much  
better then the bottom 3 for resolution. Of the bottom 3 the Summitar  
has the best contrast, the Summicron coll the best resolution.

You can judge for yourself.
