Re: Contax Zeiss Distagon 28mm f2.8 - Any samples on Nex7?

Distagon 28/2.8 C/Y is an outstanding lens.Better than 35/2.8,25/2.8 and 18/4 C/Y Distagons - sharp across the frame from f2.8,beautiful contrast and colours.To me this is the best WA Contax lens out of all with the max aperture of f2.8 or slower ,doesn't matter AE or MM ,Made in Japan or Gremany.

II currently have a range of C/Y lenses with two copies of 28/2.8 MM (have had 2 AE copies before) and use them mostly with my two NEX5N bodies (previously with NEX5/ NEX3/3C and various Canon bodies i.e.5D2/5D/7D/50D/550D).

Distagon 28/2.8,Planar 50/1.7 and 85/2.8 C/Y Sonnar are my favourite lenses for NEX cameras.

Don't have the NEX7 yet but guess from my previous experience and what I know about the NEX7 so far,that 28/2.8 will be as good as always before.Iit is retrofocal so no worry about poor corner performance.
