What's the chances that anyone has used all the lenses on this list and had a chance to compare them?

Hmmmm. A few thoughts.

I only shoot wide and normal lenses, so image stablisation is not an issue. Faster focussing? Sure, that's always good, but I didn't buy this for dSLR performance, so not critical. I've yet to have focussing issues.

From what I can find out, the A7II is heavier than the A7 - 556g vs 416g. Not a huge amount on its own, but I'd rather have the lighter weight for a day's street photography.

The ergonomics look interesting (although it looks a bit bulkier as a result) the shutter button isn't in the most natural place on the A7.

I think for me to upgrade there would need to be uncompressed RAW files, no low-pass filter option and something along the lines of improved sensor/dynamic range (without having to go up to 36mp) .

What is it with Zeiss and huge tin can sized lenses? I know the quality is generally very good, but these are for small mirrorless cameras. If I needed that absolute degree of quality, I'd use a dSLR anyway. Do they need to be so big?

Fantastic. As others have said, the lighting and composition is spot on.
