Shootout: Leica 28/2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH vs Leica 28/2 Summicron-M ASPH

Leica offers two 28mm lens for M cameras. Which to choose?

This example is quite instructive and should prove highly useful to anyone contemplating a 28mm M lens.

Your recent updates/comparisons on the 28mm Leica lenses and 24mm Leica lens are very insightful.

Further to your commentary on the sharpness of the M9 vs the M240, I would be interested to know what you think about the rendering/drawing/colors of the M9 compared to M240 in these circumstances.

Do you find that either the M9 or M240 camera/sensor combination gives a more pleasing image irrespective of the lenses used?

DIGLLOYD: there are some things I miss about the M9 image quality; the M9/M9P CCD sensor has a look to it overall that seems more appealing than the M240 CMOS sensor, better acutance and a different look reminiscent of medium format sensors (the CCD that is). See also the comparisons of the two cameras made last year. In its favor, the M240 behaves better at higher ISO and also with the sun in the frame, and the EVF is a huge plus. There are other considerations too.
