Howdy all,

I've really been enjoying the Leica 50 Summicron R (E55) TAPed on my A7RII. Always in the quest for lighter, smaller for travel, I'm wondering if the Version IV of the 50 Summicron M performs similarly without the IQ problems associated with M to Sony? If so, I'll stick with the R, but if the difference is minimal, it would be great to pare things down. Thanks in advance!

Both lenses share the ‘same’ optical formula. Due the mount differences, the M lens performs slightly better in close distances, and R lens is stronger in farther distances. But these differences were only measure on the optical benches. In real life, I don’t know if one can tell the differences. I have both lenses and I use the R mount on my A7R.

Thanks Ocean, in real life, no one can tell the difference between the R and the M when mounted on a Sony A7x body?

Jack, I used both on my A7r and I don't see any differences. The reason I use R mount is that it can focus closer then the M version. I also feel that M mount lenses are better fit with Leica bodies.
