A7 + LA-EA4 + SAL35F18 and A7 + LA-EA1 + SAL35F18 - samples inside

The SAL35F18 has been one of my favourite APS-C lenses. I was curious to see whether it could be used on the A7 and made few preliminary tests. Here are the very first results.

Vignetting with LA-EA4 at MFD:

Vignetting with LA-EA4 at infinity:

Vignetting with LA-EA1:

FOV in FF mode:

FOV in crop mode:

Corner performance in FF mode (image shot against a flat patterned surface):

Target image in APS-C crop mode:

As the image above, but camera set to FF:

I'd say it is usable in FF mode with a bit of cropping (corners are really bad, beside the heavy vignetting) as a temporary solution. What do you say?
