Thanks Douglas. For those that don't know, Sony MTFs are theoretical, unlike Zeiss MTF's, so both of these are a little optimistic. I also read in the specs that the FE 35 2.8 also uses three aspherical elements. I'm sure Sony attempted to match the RX1 performance as close as possible with the 35 2.8. The 55 looks exceptional, which I expected after seeing the official F2 A7r samples from that lens.
Yeah, optimistic, although Leica's are, too. Either way, good for comparison between the two cameras. Looks to be about what I expected. New 35/2.8 may have slight sharpness advantage in center, but edges go to the RX1. It'll be interesting to see how they compare in regards to distortion.
The 55/1.8 looks like it could be a real M and ZM killer, outside of maybe the size.
