35 Summarit on M9

Anyone tried the Summarit 35mm on the M9 yet?

 

Now that we're back to full-frame, I may be in the market soon for a smaller 35mm as a backup/supplement to my 35 'Lux. I once owned a 35 Summicron, but unfortunately I sold it since I didn't use the 35mm focal length much on the M8.

 

I've read Sean's reviews and have generally heard that the 35 Summarit is a great lens and comparable with the 35 Summicron ASPH but with a slightly different look.

 

I tend to prefer lenses that are sharp but not too clinical. I don't mind contrasty lenses, but probably prefer a bit lower macro contrast while maintaining fine detail and microcontrast.

 

Judging by the reviews and samples done with the M8, the Summarit seems like a great option for me. But has anyone used it with the M9? I'm wondering if the corners hold up on full-frame digital.

the corners hold up very well, micro contrast is medium-high, the bokeh is ok, maybe a bit on the harsh side, when compared to the crons and luxes. but the lens is rather (almost clinically) sharp.

Interesting. I've never used the 35 Summarit but I was under the impression that the bokeh was softer and less harsh than the 35 Summicron and that the Summarit was sharp but had more of a pre-aspherical look. I'll have to try one out I guess.
