This is a very good lens. It's very compact for a 50F1.4, especially if you have been shooting with a full frame SLR. Although small, the lens is very solid and feels relatively heavy. Focussing is very smooth and easy. I find myself using the focussing tab almost all of the time.
At first I was petrified in spending so much on a lens (note, I even bought mine used for less than retail), but upon seeing the results, I'm quite stunned. It renders the out of focus areas (bokeh) unlike any other lens I've ever tried (and I even own the Canon 85 f1.2 for my DSLR), and the color...
Perfect for color and sharpness. Small size, easy to focus. Much better than I expect. I used several different popular brands in the past. This one is the best. I will stick it for the rest of my life.

Coming from a fine Canon 5DIII with L lenses I was surprised by the compactness and superior quality of the images this lens produces. I can now focus as fast or faster than auto focus and for once actually focus on the exact spot I want..
So far I have four 50mm prime lenses, two of this Summilux M one black one silver, a Cron 50mm and a silver CV 50 1.5. This one's the best.First, the build quality is superb, though it's much heavier then the black version, it feels solid and go well with my silver M-P.
I went back and forth among this lens, the 50 2.0, and the 50 2.0 APO. The APO, which costs a fortune, didn't seem to me any better than this. The 1.4 seemed to have a more special look than the 2.0. I've now tried the 1.4 for a few weeks and am glad I chose this lens. Outstanding sharpness.
I recently wrote a review about this lens but I thought I should include a couple extra points.I did a comparison between the Summilux 50/1.4 and several other 50mm prime lenses (Summicron 50/2, Zeiss Planar 50/2, Nokton 50/1.5 ASPH) and did a 'pixel peep' at 100% enlargement.
This is the best 50mm lens I've ever had.
A remarkable lens, impeccably constructed, though heavier than I expected.
