^ - That thing must be huge on the NEX - how is it with the SB?

It is the lens and a little more. Fits nicely in a small bag. The lens is pretty nice on the SB, since 28mm is something like 28mm. The SB will serve my purposes until I can afford a full frame nex.

So after pitting my primes against my two CZ Vario-Sonnar zooms (35-70 and 28-85) I can clearly say confidently that the two zooms have incredible color reproduction that's almost as good if not better than the primes. There's something magical about this zoom in particular that makes itself a permanent extention to my 5D Mark II.

Long time lurker here. I've been using the 28-85 on the NEX series for some time and it was my go-to lens for weddings etc. and found it was fantastic! Unfortunately, it has developed a haze problem in the last 6 months... I showed the pics below to a camera repair group and they thought it was lens separation. What do you guys think?

I know this is an old thread. But I will really appreciate any help from you guys.
Can this zoom be used on Sony A7R II? What adapter would I need, and what can I expect performance-wise?

Top performance, on par or better than the 35-70. I use Novoflex adapter, slightly pricey but very well built.

On the downside the lens is big (much bigger than the 35-70) and it does produce some CA wideopen (but is easily corrected).

Sure you can use it with a cy adapter; it's a good zoom, especially for its era, but you'd be using it for economy reasons - it's not like the 35-70 which is decent prime good when stopped down at every fl, and small to boot.
