Nex-7 vignetting with FW 1.01??

Did it improve - Yes. Particularly for the SEL16F28, or E16, see images below.

First is the Voigtlander Color Skopar 21mm, or CV21, then the E16, then some vignetting test.

I have not spend much time studying edge and corner sharpness, I assume that they would improve by the same margin as the magenta cast did improve. (Have to run to the office now).

- JPG images down-sized to 16Mb (for Nex-7), no other adjustments.

(I just noticed that the new, today, 5N images are taken in Vivid mode), hence more 'blue' in the sky.

==== CV21 TEST =====

With FW 1.00

With FW 1.01

Nex-7 with CV21/f4, different time of day, but improvement is visibile

Nex-7 with E16 still shows magenta cast, but more mild now.
