For many years, Leica has used names to indicate speeds: Noctilux f/1 or f/1.2, Summilux f/1.4, Summicron f/2, Elmar/Elmarit f/2.8 or f/3.4 or f/3.5. Nowe they're reintroducing the old Summarit name (formerly a single 50/1.5 lens) as the f/2.5 line. There are no 'top' or 'inferior' lines, just different speeds.
