Frankly, I rarely use it - 50mm isn't the most useful focal length for my shooting. I have a 35mm f1.4 pre-aspheric Summilux and 90mm f2.8 Tele-Elmarit, which are more useful.

I think the one bad review about a Leica M lens on the A7 should be given little credence. Let's see how the production cameras handle them.

Thanks, though I'm not sure 50mm Summicron performance carries over to Summilux (also, you can't really tell the sides & corners from that shot).

But here's more worry:

I'm looking forward to more detailed tests, which I expect should start showing up soon...
