Good day all... I recently bought my first ever leica, an M10, after renting one for about a week.

I had rented a new 50mm 1.4 summilux aspherical. I was blown away by the image quality. I went into a store to buy one, and I just felt something was off with that lens. It was a display model and had a bit of dust around the edges of the circumference. I was just wondering if there were huge differences between image quality produced by the same lenses produced at different times a year or two apart? I'm not sure how old the lens in the store was but it was also a 50mm summilux 1.4 asph. But I felt strongly enough about it not to purchase it and rather make sure I get a brand new one similar to the one I rented.

Has anyone else had a similar experience with new vs slightly older versions of the same lens?
