Re: NEX-5N 21mm lens advice needed

Sounds like you're talking about the ZE/ZF 21/2.8. The OP is asking about the ZM models - for Leica rangefinder mount. The 2.8 is small and the 4.5 is tiny.

I'm also interested in the difference between these two on the Nex.

I rented the Zeiss 21mm on both my Nikon and NEX3 cameras for a job and delivered the highest resolution EVER for that repeat job. But found the Zeiss a Tank! huge and front heavy. While it was fine on the tripod, it is not something i would want to cary and use hand held. So after trying a bunch of 21mm lenses, settled on the Zuiko, small, lightweight, easy to use and very sharp. Will i rent the Zeiss again from my friends at Lens Rental, for next years shot on a NEX7? I don't know...guess i will have to see what i think about the NEX 7 when it finally finds me.
