Re: "NEW" Leica lenses announced..
I am sorry to hear about your problems with the new 28 Summicron, but it seems to be not quite what everyone else has reported about the new lens. Jono and Sean have posted reviews that seem to show the new lens to be quite an improvement.

I have both lenses and the new version is much shaper in all aspects.
Sorry to hear about your experience and great to hear you have a good copy of the new 28 Summilux.
