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?

I used the 28/2.8 and this 35/2.8 for a bit (with A7R I) and arround 5.6/6.1 I was satisfied with the results. Gave me joy of use until I had enough cash to upgrade for a more modern lens.
