I don't know about you, but I still don't like the photos from the SEL 24/1.8. They just look too digital, too plasticy...

Yep. That about sums it up for me as well - a complete lack of character.

the photos I saw from the SEL 24/1.8 just don't add up to the price

Agreed. The lens sounded attractive to me until I saw the results, which gave me the nudge I needed to buy a Fuji X100 (for less money ) just to cover the capabilities of the Zeiss on a NEX. Needless to say I have no regrets; the Fujinon 23/2 on the X100 is even better than I expected and simply gorgeous at infinity, unlike the Zeiss. And you get a rather nice "free" camera with it
