Anyone using this new Sony full frame videocam for adapting abandoned mount lenses ?

There's a another thread discussing VG900 + M mount (which has not been abandoned!): http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1148278/7 .

I had a VG900 for a week, returned it when I found there was too much corner smearing with wide angle lenses. Also it is difficult to operate as a camera (control for white balance is difficult to access, control for exposure comp seems to adjust absolute exposure not relative to metered level so you have to keep adjusting as light changes).

By any chance have you any samples to share or already posted somewhere? I'm curious as to how bad the smearing gets, although I'm not at all surprised to learn it is problematic.

As mentioned in the other thread, I have some examples on flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/dakw23/sets/72157631993239568/with/8179979693/) and more samples on dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/02zwzgmkz2p727i/Bw9Lv_AJUO). 35mm lenses have problems at larger apertures, wider than that it gets worse, except for the Leica 28mm Elmarit-M f/2.8 ASPH.

I had my eye on this camera, but the price in the EU is ridiculously high, and also, it just got some very negative comments in this article:

To me, the poor performance of the VG-900 indicates that a full frame NEX camera might not be ideal after all, and that the NEX-line should stay APS-C, where perfomance is indeed extraordinary.

Interesting article, but ouch! -- a video camera that fails hard at its primary function.
Edit: It seems that the A99 has equally bad video quality. :/ http://www.eoshd.com/content/9102/johnnie-behiri-shoots-professional-work-on-sony-a99-sample-videos-and-review
