John,

how would you compare the NEX with the Zeiss 24mm f1.8 to the X100 with regards to image quality?

I didn't buy a Zeiss 24 but I looked at many images from it; I bought the X100 instead of rather than in addition to the Zeiss.

They are quite different lenses and I much prefer the "look" of the X100 lens, which is why I chose it. The Zeiss is a Sonnar which has fairly poor corners with a sharp centre when used wide open, not a look that I like for much of the stuff I do. Had it been a Planar design my decision may have been different.
