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.

I'm not sure it makes sense to do the comparison with cameras that are a factor of 1.414 (or 2.0, depending on how you count) apart in resolution. Here's a test of the Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux on a Leica M240 vs the Zony 55mm f/1.8 on a similar-resolution Sony a7:

It's not against the 'cron APO, but the Sony FE 55 still comes off the winner.
