I understand where Phillipe and Roland are coming from, since those sentiments are what made me decide I was better off "trading down" to the Summicron 90. But I don't disagree with Gregg. The Lux is sharp (enough) wide open. The problem isn't the in focus areas, but the harsher transitions between in focus and out of focus and the watercolor bokeh. Used at the right distance with the right background, the lens is capable of some beautiful stuff wide open, but for general use, including most things focused closer than 3M, the results are consistently better stopped down to f/2 or slower. Just my opinion, of course.
