Guess the 50 - Leica f2 versus Pentax f1.7

so let's play a little game and see how you know your lenses to those who own them and to those who don't to see how well acquainted they are with the difference.

both lenses were shot at f2 in all scenes.

first comparison.

All the B images look like they could be shot with the Pentax lens. As does the first A image, except it's warmer, just like the other A images.

Not sure about the fiber shot. The other two shots I'd have to guess that A is the Leica and group B is the Pentax.
