Re: Zeiss 2.8/35mm C + 2.8/25mm ZM Shots

I hear ya. Wider angle is still tough on the NEX. Your ZM 25 looks good, but I've still seen purple shift in the corners in some scenes form others.

I have a ZM 25 landscape shot with bright edges--from what I see, I cannot detect (or want to see? lol) any purple shift or smearing. I was going to upload it for you, but dpreview is updating servers atm.

Do you have the Sony 16mm? If you crop to about 12MP, it gives you around a 28mm field of view, and it conveniently chops off the most extreme corners, which is the problem area with that lens.

Yes I have the 16mm and it performs fine for me @ f5.6-f11. I am considering selling it though, mainly because it has no distance scale. Shooting at f8 @ ISO200 usually means long exposures with 2 sec self timer. I need a distance scale for that. I feel like I'm shooting blind in the dark with the 16mm; I need to see exactly what distance the lens is set.
