Does anyone use this lens with an N7?

I've heard this lens isn't well suited to the N7, but how are the results on this camera - are they acceptable or really poor?

´╗┐Below are OOC JPG from a Nex-7 with firmware V1.0. The firmware update improves the magenta caset effect a little.

Magenta cast happens outdoors under certain angles to the sun, and can be mitigated by stopping down.

Stopping down also reduces the edge softening that occurs at f/2.8.

But see for yourself - there is a hint of magenta cast in the last picture, the other pictures seem fine. Check the aperture.

Edge softening is usually not an issue - as long as there is a subject in the center.
