Hi, I have recently bought the e60 Summilux 50 R v2 . I don't have the v1 e55 anymore to compare directly. 

My v1 was a good user and not that sharp at f1.4. i have never tried an other sample.

The v2 I have now is mint  and is sharper wide open than the v1 I had, with a slightly colder feel to the color rendering . The v2 is heavier, bigger than the v1 yet I don't mind as I prefer its rendering, having shot both on the SL.

Overall it is a subjective choice , YMMV .

Thanks for your wonderful uploads JMF. Your photographs look very good.

Rendering of the E60 reminds me the LUX-M 50 f1.4 Asph. (latest version) which I stopped using.. This similarity seems obvious in your second and third photos. Yes, they are sharp, nearly have perfect colour accuracy, relatively good bokeh. But I think the E55 produces better glow and bokeh, softer image which I like more, though.  As you underlined in your post this is a personal taste.. 

Many thanks once agin for your wonderful uploads...

I have a bunch of photos made with the Summilux-R 50mm f/1.4, using the Sony A7, Leica SL, Leica M-P 240, and Leica CL bodies available for viewing on flickr. Here's a search link to them, if you're inclined to look: flickr.com — GDGPhotos with Summilux-R 50mm f/1.4

enjoy!

Reviving this thread, the 50/1.4R ver.1 and 2 (not the last one with e60 filters), is similar to ver. 1 and 2 of the 50/1.4M.  The R has a glow that is beautiful.  This image is straight out of camera, Leica SL 50/1.4R @ f1.4.

The Thambar look is very difficult to duplicate.  With the 50/1.4R has been my most successful attempt so far.  Highly processed.

Summilux-R 50 V1 (1971) with 85a filter, Kodak Vision3 500T on an R6.2.  I haven't tried the later versions but can say this is a very interesting lens.

I agree - My Leica 50mm R-E60 Summilux is my favorite 50 Leica lens - by far

Summilux-R 50 E55.

Originally, I was skeptical about this lens looking at the MTF charts. However, I got it as part of a bundle deal, so it was worth trying. It has grown on me and I am starting to really like it in certain applications.
