The same Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm scored 25 on the NEX-7.

That is about the same score as the NEX lens the OSS 50 SEL 1.8. And just slightly better than the 35/1.8.

So what is the big deal?

How well do those work on full frame? (rhetorical question, no need to answer)

Correct, but what if your goal is to use a NEX-7? (like me.) I'm asking this because there have been some attempts to get APS-C NEX owners to purchase the FE lenses.

Same with the Sigma 60mm f/2.8 (which is a lot sharper than the Sony 50mm f/1.8).

I didn't know that and will search that; thanks.

The point is this is a full frame 50mm class lens that performs well across the frame on a full frame camera. Buying the ZEISS for a NEX is not the best idea, but it is still better than the Sony 50mm f/1.8, but if you just care about sharpness on the NEX 7, the best lenses are probably the Sigma 30 and 60mm f/2.8.

I'm actually very happy with my 50SEL1.8 and it is the highest DxO-rated NEX lens of them all.
