Thank you for the review. I own the Cine version, which is optically the same but doesn't have the RF coupling. My experience using it on the NEX-5n is that it is very sharp wide open as I tried to show with the pictures in this thread. In fact it blows the other two f/0.95 lenses I have tried (Canon 50/0.95 and Schneider-Kreuznach 50/0.95) right out of the water in terms of sharpness at least.

I know people have experienced problems with the build of the RF version but in terms of IQ, most reviews up until yours have been very favourable.

The photozone one was done of the NEX-7 which has a difficult sensor for borders. Mine was sharp on the border though I think there is a touch of focus shift.
