Re: Running low on Zeiss 24mm...ok, I guess we can ship the Nex 7 kits now

Well, I just came from the GH2 world, where I had the Panny Summilux F/1.4 25mm and formerly the Nokton F/.95. The 1.8 didn't seem as sharp to me even as the 50mm F/1.8 E-Mount I have. Maybe I just had a bad copy?

This is the WEIRD thing on this lens. I read some who rave about it here and also on Luminous Landscape where it is comparable to a $6K Leica. (If I remember correctly.) And then some forumites makes statements about how the lens doesn't impress them. The one that I am most curious is that low light is not a big deal over the kit lens. I mean, this is 2 stops faster - that is a whole lot faster in shutter speed - and yet not impressed in low light?

For me, a key of any 1.8 lens is the shallow depth of field which allows for a subject to really be isolated. Or perhaps some users are shooting it at smaller apertures simiilar to the kit lens? Or perhaps the kit lenses are just that excellent?
