Alas, I haven't had the opportunity to try the 32mm Touit. I have, however pitted my Sigma 30mm and a Leica Summicron-R 35mm [on the NEX-7] against an Olympus OM 50/1.8 and Minolta MD 45/2 on the A7. In both instances, I found the A7 had a definite "peeping" advantage for both landscape and shallow focus shooting, even when being deliberately handicapped with cheaper optics.

The NEX-7 underperforms on lens tests. This shows up where DxO gives higher P-MP scores for the A3000 vs. the NEX-7 for many lenses.

Yes, by 1/2 a point. It's insignificant and may be within the statistical error allowance.

E24/1.8 on NEX-7:

overall score: 22 points

I'd say that is under-performing given that the NEX 7 has a resolution advantage. Well, maybe under-performing is the wrong concept, as the NEX is an older model.
