50mm frame lines work great for a 40mm and they are quite close since Leica 50mm frame lines are a bit wider than actual 50mm.

I think it's the other way round for film Ms with 28mm framelines (including Dbrass's MP). The 50mm framelines show less than you'll get on the negative unless you're shooting very close.

I think you can see even of the reduced resolution, that Summilux showing more Details and clarity. Both lenses where adjusted and cleaned in Wetzlar and very good optics.

Thank you for the pictures! I have to say though, I can't see any difference at all on my screen. Based on these pictures alone, I don't think I'd be able to tell them apart in a blind test.

I have a calibrated EIZO and I have Darkroom prints 24x30, and there is a difference in details and clarity. I always print my pictures, color I have them print on silver rich Fuji RA4 paper. So prints are my reference point.

Hard to do comparos on film no? Too many variables i would think but the last time i used film was 20 years ago so i may be completely wrong.

Well, I use the same settings, same film, camera..of course, with a rangefinder there is always the problem of user error.

I See clearly different greytones on my Eizo, but importantly on my Darkroom prints on the same paper, same settings...of course, all is adjustable ..just wanted to show that there is a difference out of the box...on digital, they just behave differently...

 

in Reality, I agree, it doesn't matter...on film, I like to have 1.4...that is another argument for me so I accept MFD of 90 cm
