Be wary of the Contax G 35mm f/2.8 as I get plenty of magenta on the edges with the A7r, so much so that it's not usable for me. It may be fine on the A7 but I have no idea.

Contax G 35/2.0 maybe? Not aware of a 35/2.8.

Oops! Had to go dig it out. 28mm!
Well, in that case I'll just corroborate the color shift everybody else has reported for this lens...I have no idea why I thought it was a 35. LOL!

I do have a CZ Jena 35mm f/2.8 Flektogon - maybe that was stuck in my head. It works fine on the A7r by the way. Kind of superfluous though because I have the native EF Zeiss 35...

Anyway, I'll close my mouth now before I stick my foot in it again.
