I'm a bit concerned as to whether the Leica M-mount 50mm holds up on the NEX.

Did you see the samples here:

I was a bit unclear about the Summilux 50mm samples -- for example, Sony's FE seemed better in the corners?

btw, any particular reasons you suggest Summicron rather than Summilux?

fwiw, my expectation is to use the 50mm lens as effective 75 on my NEX7, and 50mm on A7/A7r (or some other full-frame body if somebody makes one).

Price. The Lux is up there. But if you can afford it, go for it.

I'd wait, though, for either to be vetted on the A7r. That shouldn't be too long.

I use the Summicron on a NEX-6. I don't recall hearing about any issues with it on the 7. Maybe someone else can confirm.
