Some findings on usability of 55-200 and 20mm on A7

I have removed the back plastic protection from 55-200mm NEX lens and it now covers significantly more. It starts covering FF just after 135mm mark - perhaps 140-200mm.

Not bad. I have to say it doesn't cover it 100%, there is still vignetting left, but very usable.

20mm NEX Pancake needs cropping and according to my calculations, on A7, it becomes 16.7MP 25mm lens. Pretty good!

20mm straight from the camera.

20mm, cropped to  5000x3333= 16.67MP, 25mm equivalent
