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.

What is most interesting to me is the reaction from posters. It seems resolution and sharpness are less preferable to most posters than color saturation and out of focus texture.

Most posters seem to also have a distaste for leica. It would have been more interesting if Huff had posted blind samples. Barring that, he could have easily matched the samples for focus and balance.
