2 Leica D lenses comparison

Hi all,

Planning to get either the Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm F3.8-5.6 or the Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm F2.8-3.5 for my E3. Speed aside, is the larger Elmarit worth the extra cost, weight, difficulty to hunt down, etc? Is it sharper, has better control over CA, etc?

Funny that I have a feeling that Leica was more involved in the design of the larger Elmarit than the newer Elmar. Wat do you think?

TIA.
