Well I haven't had this near perfect lens for long, but here's a few samples, all scanned on the Epson V700 and processed in LR4:

It handles direct lights at night quite well:

Also harsh side lighting because of the perfect hood (same as the lux 35 asph FLE):

It's really a worthwhile purchase.

It's funny because every time I think about buying a digital Leica, I wind up buying a lens instead :D

I just bought the M-E about two months ago and it's my first Leica body. I found a mint 50mm Summilux pre-ASPH latest version and a 90 Elmarit latest version. Before I'd consider the 21 I'm looking at a 28 Elmarit pre-ASPH latest version. That keeps all my filters at 46mm which I think the 21mm 3.4 ASPH uses too.

28, 50, 90 is a pretty great line up, but the 21mm really provides a unique perspective I love.

I use a 35/90 or 21/50 combo when I want just two lenses

A large number of truly outstanding photos (it's hard to even pick favorites) and mind-blowing samples of this fine lens! You're a one man tour de force. :)
