Still,t ye are not the sharpest at 1.4 and are old designs. Sometimes you get less contrast , and obviously less sharpness, and a lot of CA. They are old lenses.

This is my question.  I am thinking about getting into mirrorless too, but will the legacy lens movement last?  Do those old lenses yield images which can stand up to those from pro-sumer grade lenses or can they only match today's kit lenses?  Are today's lenses better wide open and better wrt defects which can not be corrected in PP?

Thanks for raising the point.
