Re: Summarit vs Summicron

I just wanna know what's the big difference between the two lines.. apart of the aperture f/2.5 and f/2.0 because the prices have huge gaps...

Personally, I wouldn't bother with either: you should check out Zeiss's ZM line instead. Much more affordable than their Leica counterparts and optically superior (someone will inevitably argue that point but it's true). I have both the 35mm f/2 and the 35mm f/2.8. Both are ridiculously sharp and have next to no distortion. I highly recommend either one of them but if you don't need the extra stop get the 2.8 because it's considerably smaller than the f/2.
