Robert Cicala at lensrentals has tested the A7r+Sony f2.8 prime and indeed it shows amazing resolution. On the other side he say, that Sony precook the raw-files. So take any (good) lens and apply some sharpening. You will get same resolution in the test charts or even higher.

At photozone.de, they use same camera and absolutely same raw converter settings, because even simple sharpening higher the resolution numbers by 30%.

I am aware of it and having an eye on further reviews to come. As far as I have noticed, existing reviews regarding the A7R plus Sony/Zeiss prime glass seem to be consistent.

Besides the very small package, the A7R would allow me to adapt some Zuiko OM (macro) glas from film days that I have sitting on the shelf but that cannot be used on a Nikon (without some trouble I do not want). I would expect that the Zuiko OM 50 3.5 MC Macro resolves better and more consistent than the AFS 50 1.8 G.
