Just in case you missed that, the Sony A7R with 35mm f/2.8 lens shot at f/2.8 outresolved the Nikon D800e with either the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G shot at f/4 or the Zeiss 50mm f/2 shot at f/5.6. Stopped down to f/4 to even the playing field, the Sony was clearly higher. In fact, the only lens-camera combinations we’ve seen with that kind of MTF50 is the Zeiss Otus 55mm mounted to a D800e.
Well, DxO says the 35mm f/2.8 is actually superior in resolution on the NEX-7 compared to the 35mm f/1.8.
Which is why NkedFatWhIteGuy's reaction to is so surprising to me. Of the Sony lenses that I've owned, it's by far the best performer. Of course, I've never had a chance to shoot with the 55 f1.8.
