I have used the Sony 35mm f/1.8 lens on my a580 and it produces some really nice and sharp images. You can use this inexpensive lens with the NEX-7 if you get either the LA-EA1 or LA-EA2 adapters. The difference between the 1 and the 2 is that the 2 includes a translucent mirror and the focus mechanism out of the SLT-a65. This is good and bad. It is good in that the AF is really fast and accurate. The bad is that it is larger and heavier than the 1 and it cuts down the light going to the sensor. Check out the ISO noise performance of the a65 or a77 as this is the performance the NEX-7 will have with the LA-EA2.

Depending on what Sony (and Sigma and Tamron) introduce over then next several months, I may get the LA-EA1 and use my A mount 35mm as well as my Tamron 17-50 f/2.8. I would prefer for Sony to make native E mount lenses of these types, particularly with stabilization, but there are alternatives if Sony misses the boat.
