Sony Carl Zeiss 24mm F/1.8 review

Here’s a little tid-bit that will make some people mad: I’m glad I don’t have the Sony 35/1.4 G lens anymore, if I would’ve compared the Sony 35mm F/1.4 G using the A900, and the NEX CZ 24mm F/1.8 using the NEX-7 at apertures of F/1.8-4, the 35mm F/1.4 G would literally look like it was focused improperly, there would be that much difference at those apertures!  Both cover the same area and have the same megapixels, so it’s a fair comparison.

Believe it or not; I’d prefer this combo (NEX-7 and 24/1.8) to the A900 with either the CZ 24/2 SSM or 35/1.4 G, even if they both cost the same, why?  The NEX-7 and CZ 24/1.8 performs better than the A900 with either of the two lenses mentioned.  Plus, I don’t like the bulk and weight of the full frame equipment, I enjoy traveling light, even if it’s just across town.
