Leicas are really known for their microcontrast which makes photos pop.. if youre looking for sharpness, just get a macro lens and stop down.

Sharper at a) the same aperture and b) the same DoF, and only costs £3000 less! More CA but less vignetting. And of course the Leica can achieve a 50% thinner DoF than the PanaLeica.

I think the best M43 lenses are fantastic quality.

I am aware that there may be other reasons to buy a Leica, however.
