Well it's good to hear that better than one of the nikons, i was deciding between this and the nikkor 50mm 1.4 ais, the price tag on this and the autofocus sealed the deal. I would have liked to compare both lenses, and 1.4 i have a feeling it would be too soft and probably comparible at f2 so didn't see much reason to get the nikkor.

Matadurr,

How does your AI-S lens compare to this lens(sharpness, color)?

thanks

unfortunately, I sold it a couple days after I bought it to a guy on Amazon. Seeing as I missed out on the preliminary NEX-7 preorders, I figured someone else would be better served with the lens than me (I STILL don't have the camera).

However, from pictures on here I can tell you that when compared to my Nikon 50mm f/2 AI at f/2, this Sony smokes it both at f/2 and f/2.8 in sharpness, contrast, and color. Trust me, this is a great lens, one that I really want to purchase again once I get a damn camera in!
