Not sure everyone is going to like my results the Summarit just rips them all apart. Every test i have run even on different bodies the same result at 2.5 the Summarit wins the sharpness battle.

Alright i actually ran this test twice on different subject checking focus every time and identical results and it follows the pattern we have been seeing the Lux comes to life at f4 . The Cron is nice at F2 but at 2.5 the edge goes to the summarit. Now there is no sharpening and reason we are seeing what we are..Here is the full image and the Yellow is the approximate crop, Than i will put the Lux 1.4 shot in this farme also

The lux and cron are no brainers ... I know this sounds stupid but somebody get to speak it out loud ... you can't open the summarit up to f/2.0 or f/1.4, right?

Sure you can Simon just grab the lens and slam it to the ground and bam you get F2 two pieces:D

the edge performance on film M's will be somewhat compromised below f5.6. .... performance compromises are next to undetectable on the small imaging size of the M8.

A lot of folks will jump on the summarits no question for the price there tough to beat. i actually bought the 90mm summarit and really like it very much. One thing also on the Summarit a shorter focus throw than the Lux and i found that helped me with the 90mm over my 90 cron which has a long throw so I switched it out for the summarit.

 

 

Thanks for the testing. Too bad you did not have a CV 75mm to compare it too.
