These comparisons are few and far between. Seems to me the Leica lenses are just not as good as they claim they are. Also, that Sony 55 is incredibly sharp and has less noisy bokeh.

Disagree, I think the Leica IS as good as they say......but then I think they are massively overpriced and always have been.

The Sony is better though to my eyes and at a much cheaper price.

Leica is not meant for the likes of me ....it is for people who have the money and think nothing of spending a couple of hundred dollars on a meal or bottle of wine ETC.

The Leica camera and lens will be worth a lot more than the Sony in 5 years time though.
