There was a review on the digital DeVere 504 in Black and White Photography (UK) a few years back. If I remember correctly, the opinion was that on an 8x10" print there was already a very small difference in smoothness compared to a print straight from a negative. I guess the difference would be pretty clear at the usual larger sizes, not surprisingly.
However, that APO ASPH Summicron 50 mm lens is mouth-watering. Looking at the MTF charts, it's basically as good wide-open as the previous one at f/5,6, and that lens is also a cracker from f/2.
EDIT: I just saw the price of this new lens. Unbelievable. Now the Summilux ASPH seems to be excellent value.
