Paired the A7 with the CY 35-70 today. Another great combo. The 35-70 is such a fantastic lens! And I love the macro feature!

Beautiful Gregg. That green stuff reminds me of spring. I am tempted to get the CY35-70. The excellent CY28-85 felt absolutely ok on the 5D2 but on the A7 it kind of grows further in all directions making me value the 28-34mm range less. Which is why I bought it in the first place. And at 28mm it (full protrusion) it takes the appearance of a monstrous tele though it's the opposite... :-)

I've shelved the idea of the native Zeiss 24-70 and in while in wait for a FE 16-35 this could be something. What's the bad/weak points?

^^^^Hi Wilhelm...I loved the 28-85 I had, too! But, like you said, it was(is) very big! But image quality was stellar, as is the 35-70! Haven't had too much time with it, yet, although I did shoot some over teh weekend(1D4), and then a few shots yesterday with the A7(above). It has incredible POP and shallow DoF for a 3.4 lens! I think the pop is second only to my R 90 Cron! As far as weakness goes, I think the only thing I can think of, is it can be hard to focus at 35mm(as was the [email protected]), at least for me!! All in all, and as I get to know it better, I think it's just one of those lenses youjust don't get rid of!

I noticed the OOF is not that fast, it resembles like a ZE 35/2 at f2 with closer to subject distance. i may be wrong.

what's your distance on this?

I think the FE55 got some Zeiss 3D magic but not here. Here the FE55 is just sharp and overall Zeissy. It is a crop because I am no friend of A7 and autofocus. Critical focus is with the frontmost headlight (small focus point in center) as I dont like recomposition as it puts me out of control. Anyway here the full scene which partially explain the somewhat slower OOF transition
