The day is fine, I'm just trying to be helpful. A cheap lens that's tuned to its sensor will almost surely give you better images than a good lens that's not. That's the dirty little secret of adapters and third-party lenses.

I'm not a fan of Steve Huff usually, as he tends to write the same things over and over, but he did a service and posted the results of wide-angle Leica lenses on the NEX7, http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2011/10/28/sony-nex-7-with-wide-angle-leica-lenses-a-quick-test-and-gxr-comparison/

The results are plain to see. I'd rather shoot with the kit lens at the wide end than with the multi-thousand dollar 21mm Leica with that body.
