OMG the sky is falling becaue Steve Huff finally found a few M wides to test with!!!

Dealbreaker? Steves test tells us absolutely nothing...

I get where you're coming from, but I am very concerned. After seeing Robfromthepicturedeskca's NEX-7 + ZM examples, I thought for sure that it must be some kind of user error. However, seeing that Steve's shots seem to be of similar performance with wides, I'm getting concerned.


I've been shooting Sony cameras for 4 years, and I've been all for the 24mp sensor, in terms of resolution/noise, but even I am beginning to think that Sony screwed the pooch on this one. I had been planning on shooting a CV 15, ZM 35/2, ZM 50/1.5 and Contax G 90 on the NEX-7, but I'm beginning to think that I may try a NEX-5 with EVF.

Regardless, I really hope this is all a big mistake, and the NEX-7 will be as good as NEX-5 with wide rangefinder lenses. Fingers crossed.
