SEL 24mm Carl Zeiss f1.8 or 24mm f2 Distagon T* ZA SSM Lens

I've done a search on the forum but couldn't see any direct comparisons between these 2 lenses. The f2 is dearer and would need the LEA2 adapter (but the latter could be used for other lenses as well).

I guess both are remarkably fine lenses but has anyone compared the 2. There's plenty of examples of the E mount version but I'd particularly welcome thoughts about the A mount Zeiss on a Nex 7.

Comments welcome please.

Regards

John

P.S. I know the Sigmas are better value but I've wanted another Zeiss lens since my Sony R1 days
