Sharpness comes in at 29P-mpix (tested with A7r) !

Makes the other vendors 50mm look really bad.

canon 50L has 17p and the Nikon 50 1.4g with 15p

The FE 55 "only" gets 15 on the Nex 7 (the Sony 50 1.4 gets 16 on the A850).

I do not think you can say then the other lenses are bad....edit..or look very bad.

The thing would be what the Canon and Nikon lenses score ON the A7R.....though it (FE 55) is CLEARLY a very good lens.

Not really. The whole point is what the lenses do at 24Mp (or 36 MP). Sony and Nikon both use similar sensors. This is enough to make it a fair test. It's no stretch to say that the ZA 55 is significantly better a lens than say the Nikon 50mm 1.8G - that much is clear and easy to see. What you can't do is put that lens on the Nikon - it will not be the same lens with such a short distance for registration etc.
