Re: Sony E-lenses or FE-lenses on Sony a6000

I'll just mention that the 55 FE, in particular, performs really well on my NEX-7. It's not any sharper than the SEL50, but (as is usually the case with Zeiss) the color and contrast is better.

I tried it on NEX-6 too. I bet Sony deliberately chose 55mm FL for the lens (as opposed to 50) since it provides 85mm equiv FOV for portraiture on APSc bodies. Viking actually suggested following his test/review that its actual FL is 57mm.
