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.

One picture from Steve Huff? Pretty thin evidence. You must want that nail in Leica's coffin pretty badly.

note also he is comparing an f 1.8 lens with an f1.4 lens. I think it would be better to compare it to the f2 Summicron, designing an f1.4 lens which is usable wide open involves compromises with performance throughout the f stop range its a monumentally harder task, Why did he not compare it to the fifty summicron which would be a comparable lens

The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm ASPH is an f/2 lens.
