Re: Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f1.8 ZA DxOMark Score of 42

You need a good side by side and look at 100% crop to really be able to judge it well. Prefered taken on a solid tripod at base ISO. Samples posted by most people here are not well suited for this. Even the DPreview team made some serious bad sample shots at CES.

So you can't be too harsh on the opinions before valid test data. The 55mm f1.8 looked very overpriced on paper. And most of these overpriced primes did not perform. Look at the 58mm f1.4 Nikon for instance.

However the DXo proves that Zeiss really gave it their best effort. And this is some real resolution there. Rivalling medium format in that aspect. Unheard of with this size and weight.
