sikorskd: Wow, so much hate. I don't know if the price is justified or not, but there is a great interview of the lens designer by Thorsten Overgaard that tries to explain what is special about this lens. Check it out here: http://www.overgaard.dk/leica-50mm-APO-Summicron-M-ASPH-f-20.html

By the way, I own this lens which I use on a M Monochrom (246) and I think the results are unbelievable.

I looked at those images and there is nothing there that we haven't seen in images shot with lenses at 1/6th the price.. The gap in the 'magical' qualities has been closed by other companies and lenses over the years. Even the most esoteric of things that Leica had on other lenses can be done by much less expensive glass nowadays. If folks want to collect these that's great. More power to them. But the supposed esoteric quality gap is just a myth.
