    Hi Ray,
    I'm a Zeiss ZM fanatic and bought a used 25mm lens three weeks ago. Great lens but, as usual with some WA lenses, it suffers on the NEX-7 with vignetting and a colour cast. However, this can be fixed with a free program called Cornerfix:-

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers,

    Hi Ray,
    I forgot to mention that I've sold my E mount native lenses and replaced them with Zeiss ZM. Then, when Sony release a new full frame NEX ;) I don't have to go and buy new lenses as the Zeiss image circle will cover the new sensor size.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    'crash,bang,wallop'!

    Dang I was 'winning' for 2 days @ £64.00..!.!. Thought I was going to sneak it over the line for a second, however it's just gone over my pocket money limit of £100.00.

    Never realised that it is a £800 lens lol!

    Early bids meaning nothing at Evil-Bay. And bidding early only hurts you - It only calls attention to the item. I never bid on an item until the last 10 seconds of an auction.

    Sorry to hear Ray... oh well, there's always next time.

    Just so that you're aware, some ultra wide angle lenses (but not all) can create purple fringing. Like Paul mentioned, it's easy fixed with cornerfix software.
