Re: Differences Between Summilux 1.4s

I think any optical difference is just sample variation. Maybe the BC are selected amongst the best copies during production, but I'm not even sure this is the case.

However, mechanically, I tried both and found BC to be much better. The classic 50LA is very front heavy and had some friends who needed to send their copy back to Leica because of some play. I find the BC not to have these issues, since the focus ring is larger and doesn't have to move the hood assembly.

In the end, both are fantastic and you should pick the one that suits you best in hands.
