It will be sharper (not necessarily 'better') than the Summilux asph, but 
compare size/weight and marvel at Leica ;-) Zeiss are putting fancy glass 
into the Optus, that was Leica's hallmark which Canikon did not follow due 
to the cost. The Leica 50mm AA and 75mm AA are both sharper than the 50mm 
Summilux asph, but that is in a very rarefied world....
