Samuli, I "see" the MP picture as slightly more sharply etched. It could be more contrast, or more colour saturation. Actually, on this low-res and my monitor, it looks like the MP shot is slightly more 3D. Now that I know that there is a difference in lighting, it makes drawing any conclusion less than definitive. Thanks for the effort!
Slightly more saturation I can see, like somebody said (sorry can't remember whom, read last 10 pages and you find out ) 50MP is most saturated ZE lens.
Comparing these two lenses has been actually quite fun, thou one thing I have learned is that many times 50MP looks more contrasty and saturated, but if analyzed more carefully it's because of the huge vignetting of 50MP. At f/5.6 50MP still vignettes more at infinity, but at close focus they both seem OK. It's funny that Zeiss does not specify what distance the vignetting is specified (except for f/5.6 50MP = 1:4, where it shows it's only decent vignetting curve), both Makro-Planars vignette much more at infinity than they do at close focus - both have slight tendency on some scenes to create hot spot/region in middle of image.
