Zeiss FE 1.8 55mm vs Chinon 1.4 50mm @ F2 - messabout comparison!

Tipping it outside! Bit bored mulling round the house this afternoon having sold my A7R and wondering where to go next, the A7 or the A7S. A while back I bought a Sony A3000, specifically for my manual lenses... and for fun I decided to do a head to head this afternoon.

OK so one is 55mm and the other 50, and they are both shot handheld and not in the same place. Shutter speed 1/500, iso 100, WB same shot in M etc.

Shot in RAW and developed in Lightroom 5.5... no PP whatsover hence the reason they look flat!

So one cost £50, the other £500... thoughts?
