NEX 7 + Zeiss Sonnar FE 55/1.8


I have been amazed by the images everyone has posted on here with the FE 55/1.8. Having it on my camera I still went wow at the sharpness it produces. Even though I'm using the best part of the lens on the NEX 7 I have similar thoughts about the 55 to the 35 as when i used them on the A7 and A7R. I find the focussing to be faster and more accurate on the 55 than the 35. Still my camera is the limiting factor in AF tests and not a speed demon. Here are some examples:

I think a lot of people are wondering the same - myself included. I have it on the A7 and the AF speed is perfectly fine but I'd love to see it work with the high speed AF and tracking that A6000 promises.
