    I agree that the SLR version is great but it is huge. I had that one with my D800e and ended up selling it because it is so big. I might get this ZM version eventually. I currently have the Lux-ASPH Titanium and might switch it to the Zeiss.

    The size and lack of the focus tab are negating factors for me, but I also already own the 35 FLE. I do wish the FLE had more contrast but then again I would just get the current elmarit 28mm as it's pretty close to the 35mm FL and has the features that I want (smaller size, focus tab, 6 bit coded).

    Knowing that both Zeiss and Leica's curves are mesured ones and not calculated (as most of the rest), I have put the Distagon and the Summilux curves one on top of the other... I think that, waiting for a real test, the outcome is pretty clear... (although the weight and size also... ;-) :)) .... well, and somebody will also say..."do not forget the price"... :-D

    I have to be content with the lenses that I already own and use. The money "saved" can be used in trips to Europe with the family.
