Thoughts so far ..
The Leica Summicron 50mm f2 v5 (“Cron”) is fast becoming my go-to 50mm Leica M mount lens. It focuses closer than the Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50mm f1.5 C (Cron = ~0.68M / ZM 0.9M) and is lighter and smaller than the Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4 (“Lux”) lens. The Lux can be quite clinical in it’s rendering whereas I think the Cron is closer to the Sonnar with more character. Plenty more testing to be done with each lens but those are my initial findings.
