Do you really have to buy.....

I own a E5 and 50mm macro, 14-35 and 35-100 and have great success in low light conditions with my SMALL sensor. The full frame fanatics scream out that my 2.0 is really around 4.0 on their fabulous cameras(a whole 1.5 of badness). I am thinking on buying a Lieca D Summilux f1.4. for my sub par (according to DPREVIEW) E5 but what does it mean--will the f1.4 finally be the same or one half stop away from the full frame 2.8 HOLY GRAIL. Oh my God I can't take it. AMEN

Why not inspect closely what you get with the E5 + 14-35 compared to perhaps someone else's Leica D Summilux on an E5. Hard to reason why one would buy another lens thats in the range of the 14-35 even though it's f1.4. For the practical on the field reason that is. Go ahead if you have the money though.
