Erm, Mark I assume you know that the 21mm Summilux pre-dated it so there was
no speed to leapfrog? You still say about wanting to shoot Leica but are
buying Nikon kit...

I'd kill to be able to shoot with a SUPER ELMAR-M 1:3,4/21mm ASPH  which I
belive is the epitome of wide angle lens design period. It's a reason to be
shooting with a Leica M. You could hate rangefinder cameras but be shooting
with an M to enable you to be shooting with a that lens.
Why is the lens so good ? Because they didn't let the marketing department
dictate what a great wide angle should be by jacking up the speed to
leapfrog some other companies latest offering.
