Summicron on GF-1

Panasonic GF-1, Summicron 50mm with Voigtlander VM adapter
Like a lot of people, I'm waiting for an M9; in the meantime, playing with a Panasonic GF-1. I can't tell whether the focus is a bit off in these (though at f/8 it shouldn't matter that much), whether it's camera shake (1/60 sec here, others 1/50, but what's that old rule about the shutter speed never being longer than the reciprocal of the focal length for handheld shots, and 50mm on the GF-1 is equivalent to 100mm, so...), noise (iso 800 here, but others are iso 400), or whether the Summicron draws just a bit soft (or is that another way of saying diffraction...) with this sensor.
