Carsten..."bubble bokeh"...what is that?? My E55 Lux is very sharp wide open, and stopped down is really incredible. It's very close to the FE 55 1.8( well maybe not the corners!)...the bokeh can be a touch harsh at times, but with only 6 blades, I think it does a fantastic job! At f2 it has superb 3D and is, IMO, sharper than the Cron. I have no experience with M versions, but I do have a newer R Cron coming this week, and I can compare. Picked up the Cron on a whim, thinking to step down, but we'll see. My E55 is from '86, and I consider it my fav 50 lens of all time. I have made so many great shots with it, I couldn't imagine ever selling it!
My CV 50 ASPH might be a tad sharper in the center, and the bokeh is def smoother, but stopped down, the Lux is sharper. It could be used as a landscape lens, but the Cron might be better for that particular application.
