RF lenses wider than 35mm will not have any problems on digital sensors, only WA RF lenses have issues. I would hold of on test-reports that should be coming out soon, some of the 50mm were 'suspect' (e.g. the Zeiss ZM C Sonnar 50mm f/1.5).

Thanks, though that kind of gets to my confusion & concern.

First, to be sure, when you said "RF lenses wider than 35mm will not have any problems" -- I assume there you mean narrower, ie "longer"?

That's kind of what I had been reading -- RF longer than 35mm should be fine.

But then I hear that even some 50mm may be "suspect."

So that leads me to wonder if RF is just too risky, and whether I should limit my consideration to SLR lenses?

If you could have either a Zeiss designed for SLR, or the Lux -- and if you plan on using it on a NEX7 and later also a A7/A7r -- ignoring price, just about the capability of the lens to perform on the NEX (as well as FF NEX) systems -- does one win?

Is RF for NEX/FF-NEX jut too risky?

(Oh, and regarding the e-50 -- I do want the lens to be able to play nice with the A7/A7r.)

Thank you very much for helping.

NEX-7 + 50Lux-ASPH (current) ==> magenta cast/coloring smearing.

IF I intend to "BUY" any more RF lenses to adapt on A7/A7R, I will wait for more reviews first.
