    Nex7 and Leica ( ultra) Wide R-Lenses?

    Hello
    i decide to buy a Nex 7 as digital back for my Leica R Lenses, which i can use not on my Eos System cause of the mirror is to near to the R- Lenses.
    Are ther some experiences of following lenses together with the Nex7 or 5n

    Super Angulon R 4/21
    Vario Elmar 21-35 3,5-4,5 Asph
    Super Elmar R 3,5 15

    Are there the magenta problems as well, as with the wide M lenses?

    Thanks for input and sorry for my bad english.
    Kind regards from Germany
    Bruno

    I have no personal experience with any of these lenses (unfortunately) but in general retrofocus designs which have the rear lens element a lot further from the sensor (like these R lenses) show much less corner problems than the rangefinder WA's where the rear lens element is very close to the sensor.
    I hope someone else with real hands-on experience can either confirm or deny this general trend I described.

    No problem with the elmarit 19 type 2, but i think that all leica r lenses should perform well on nex 7. (Jono has the 21-35 and is not completely satisfied with the performance of this lens, but no fault of the nex)

    Using SLR lenses on the NEX-7 shouldn't be any different than using the same lenses on the A77, outside of there being no mirror.
