I just purchased the Sony A7m3. 24mp is enough for me. I enjoy landscape photography. I usually make 11X14 photographs to hang on the wall.

Sony and Zeiss have come up with some great modern prime lenses that I am considering.

I was also wondering what would be the quality of the the results using a 20 year old Zeiss T* Distagon 35mm f2.8 prime lens from my old 35mm film camera (Contax 137md)? I know it would not take advantage of the autofocus and many of the features of the camera. But what about the resolution and sharpness of the lens?

This is worth a read...
