Hi everybody, i just got my summilux 35 fle this week. and i'm having difficulties comparing these two lenses. i'm sorry if my writing is not good and my sample picture are very crappy but this is only a test. i just want to share my experience with these lenses Please checkout this link first in flickr to see in high resolution. https://flic.kr/s/aHskP24eFN from my observation in couple days for brief moment, comparing side by side in lightroom, i really impressed with the voigtlander 35mm f1.7 ultron. Sharpness at the center the ultron beat the summilux on sharpness wide open. (f1.7 vs f1.4) but summilux beat the ultron at the same aperture f1.7 but not by much though Bokeh both have beautiful bokeh. sometimes i can't tell which is which. Contrast summilux has more contrast, but only a hair saturation summilux has more saturation but only like 3-5% i think size the Lux with the hood and the ultron without the hood is about the same size. i never use the hood on ultron since i bought it. it resist the flare very good. and it looks nicer. the ultron is slimmer than lux and lighter than the lux rendering both lens render is quite the same also. Now, the difference visible in my eye is curvature of the lens the summilux has center curvature that makes the subject on the center pop. ( i think this is the way leica did to make 3d pop) i can notice the size of a subject side by side with the voigtlander. the subject at the center is bigger on summilux than voigtlander. certainly the plane focus is not flat overall ultron is only 5-10% to catch up the FLE i would say. so in the end, i still finding the reason to keep this lens since the lens is 4x the cost of the ultron.
