Full review will be coming in the next few weeks. These compares right now are quick analysis I use and compare the two lenses. Please see Compare #1 posted earlier.

For round #2, I have 4 SOOC shots for you today. Zeiss on the left, Leica on the right. Top row is wide open, second row is f/5.6. These were all taken at ISO 160 through Leica M-E on a tripod. See below for individual images. Take note of the subtle yet present vignetting of the two top images (Zeiss 1.5 / Leica 1.4).  I'd suggest opening the crops below in separate tabs and switching between them - the differences begin to stand out.
