Yeah... and then I read this and wonder if I should bother, research, hunt it down, test it, assemble a kit. I might be better off just shooting instead.

Don't get me wrong, I love gear and I want to own one. And I can put the money into the gear.

But I want to see a quantitative step in quality besides sharpness. Either contrast or bokeh.

I didn't get enough samples from all the variants of summicrons, but the ones I've seen render background circle of confusion in a less than neutral way.

In regards to contrast - I keep hearing zeiss has more contrast, and it's also cheaper and it's easy to find a used ZM biogon which was manufactured recently by CV. Choices choices...
