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.

Yikes, really? You had that combo?

Yes, NEX-7 FW 1.02, Novoflex adapter.

To get those poor results, do you need to be wide open? Does it matter if you are focusing near or far?

Stop-down helps a little bit, not much. Obviously, in photography, light angle affects results, to an extend.

Is this poor result with NEX7 + Lux 50 ASPH documented anywhere? Thanks!

Never check.  I seldom use 50 on NEX, even seldom on my M9.  50 on NEX is 75 equivalent, not a popular focal length.  My common focal lengths are 35 and 90.
