The Luminous Landscape has published a "First Impressions" review of the Sony NEX-7. One of the most interesting parts of the review is a comparison between the new Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lens and the Leica 24mm Summilux ($6500) with each mounted on the 24MP NEX-7. Based on the test results, my first reaction was to suspect misfocus with the Summilux, because a lack of custom microlenses doesn't explain the awful center performance of the Leica, which only becomes sharp at f/11. On the other hand, Reichmann is an experienced reviewer, so he deserves the benefit of the doubt.
