"But it's not "Summicron grade" as some (probably on payroll) bloggers would subtly suggest. "

Have you priced a Summicron lately? Of course it's not "Summicron grade," but given that the entire camera is about half the price of a Summicron, it comes shockingly close in terms of rendering fine detail, contrast, etc. But if you want a Summicron, and want to shoot digital, take your $10K and buy a Leica M9 body and a Summicron - but remember that the M9 is, in terms of size and weight, the Leica equivalent of a VW Beetle, and it is virtually useless above 640 iso - and if a Leica can't be used in low light, why buy it?
