Noctilux vs Summilux


Hi everybody, I have heard that due to the different structure and design in optics, even when both lenses are set on f/1.4, the bokeh will not be the same. I was further told that the soft image effect and dark corners were exclusive with Noctilux.
Is it true? Does it mean I cannot expect similar bokeh with the Summilux?
Thanks for helping.

Hi, Eric.
I don't have the Summilux lens, no way can do the comparison. If you wish to see some of my photos taken by Noctilux, please feel free to visit my home page at
