Compared to the Summicrons or the Summilux you will only sacrifice a fast aperture. Even in low light it's not such a handicap anymore, given the high ISO performance of modern digital cameras.
I have used Leica cameras for a long time. I like them because they are light weight, require you to slow down and think about what you are doing and they are extremely well made.Just my opinion, but I do not believe the the Summilux lenses are worth the extra money.
These new summarits are only slightly cheaper than the crons, which I think is now just a reflection of the max aperture; Build quality is top notch, on par with other Leica lenses, Image quality is great. I prefer it to the cron due to better bokeh.
