What are the general opinions and merits of of Leica R Summicron 2/50 (which I don't have) vs. Contax-Zeiss Planar 1.4/50 (which I have; this is the lens that currently spends the most time on my camera)?
Any truly side-by-side comparisons? I'm having a hard time finding any.
Leica R summicron 50 is great lens, so do many other 50mm prime lens. but if you value craftsmanship, build, handling over the top, this is one of best 50mm lens at decent price with Leica name on it.
I agree and understand Helimat's POV of MP50. It is definitely most impressive f2 performance of 50mm I ever see, there is something special about its render in focus zone. I, personally no longer value that perception high contrast/micro-contrast as important as before, so I am waiting for the 55f1.4
