    Here is a link to some of my test shots, using multiple adapted lenses on the A7.


    I'm actually surprised how some lenses perform differently on my NEX-6 vs. the A7, with some doing better on one format and other ones doing better on the other format. The one constant I've noticed is that they all seem to flare more on the A7 -- not sure why...

    Love all the shots, which lens so far in your testing, do you think does the best?

    Oh gosh, picking a favorite is tough, and really depends on what I'm shooting. That said, if I had to pick one (or two :)), I'd go with the Leica Summicron DR 50mm f2 and the C/Y Zeiss Sonnar 85mm f2.8 -- probably not much of a surprise here.

    On a side note, probably the worst performers on the A7 were the CV 21mm f4 and Rokkor MD 24mm f2.8 -- also not much of a surprise. Both of these do great on the NEX-6 though.

    Has anyone tried a 55 1.2 canon on the a7 yet?
