Subject: [Leica] Winter view - 21mm lens comparison

I must admit I've always been a fan of the cooler "Zeiss-like" colours 
rather than the richness of Leica you mention. I noticed the difference 
very strongly when comparing a 135 Zeiss Sonnar with the Leica-R 135.

I almost always tend to lower the colour temperature of Leica lens shots 
when I'm processing them in Lightroom too to make them a little "cooler".
I suppose it's just a matter of taste on my part.

I always found the SA 21 a brilliant lens on film too, maybe it's just 
not suitable for use on Canon DSLRs. Some lenses are while others aren't.

Could this be something to do with the quality of adapters? Anyone have 
any ideas in this direction?
