What a disaster. Now I'll have to blame the defects in my photos on the photographer. Actually I don't have this (yet). As soon as I see a good WA zoom it's mine.

Nope but when trying to achieve a large DOF with slow shutter speeds it's going to reveal even the most minute amount of detail blur...OSS or IBIS would be awesome...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...

Is that on the A7r?

I get very sharp images with the CG45/2.0 at 1/60th, at all apertures.

I haven't played with my OM50/1.4 yet.

Does anyone have comparos between these and the FE55?

I guess that 29-Mpix on A7r means 19-Mpix on A7?

Also, if you shoot JPG, try SCN - Portrait Mode. It is picking reasonable exposure values.

Nope, 19mpix may well be the wrong expectation. The Otus outresolves the Nikon D610 with 23mpix and scores 29mpix on D800, so expect 23mpix on the A7

Simply phenomenal lens, crazy sharpness wide open and transmission value of a f/1.5 lens and then it is a Sonnar, my favorite. Gotta have it!

This set of Sony Zeiss lenses are going to set a new bar for lenses.

indeed i think the transmission value is as impressive as the sharpness score.
