it sounds strange to me. you might have a bad copy

I've just tested my 50/1.8 on Nex7 and compared it very quickly to the 85mm/1.2 on my 5D2. comparison was with the 50 at f/5.6 and the 85 at F/8. The 85 had a visible but small advantage on the 50. of course the 85 was already great at f/1.2 but we're talking about a lens 7 times more expensive than the 50.

I guess I'm just waiting on photozone to review the zeiss. then i'll make up my mind about it.
