50mm APO-Summicron f/2

Can someone explain how does this lens fit into the product line of Leica lenses? I have the 50mm 1.4 ASPH and it is extremely good lens with larger aperture. Why would I want to switch to a slower lens which costs something like 50% more? Usually the lenses with smaller aperture cost less than the ones with larger aperture and they are sharper. So this lens should not cost more than 1.4 lens...
