The Summicron is lower contrast, will not look as sharp. It will preserve more shadow detail.

If you can find a collapsible Summicron in good condition, also look at it. Cost about 1/3 less than a Rigid. Not quite as sharp, but close.

Some shots with my Collapsible and Type I Rigid Summicron on the Leica forum, here:
