Rich, no doubt the 40 'Cron is a fine lens, and I considered it. But, at one point, I had lenses with 6 different mounts for my A7R. 6! (Leica R, Leica M, Olympus, Contax G, Contax C/Y, FE). I decided that was crazy, and that i would be going down to 2: FE for light, AF, for everiday and another for more dedicated shooting. I narrowed it down to Rokkor, Olympus, and Leica R, before deciding Leica R was my preference. So, much as I may be sorry to have sold my M 'Cron 75 AA, or to stay...Show more →
I too have the R 50 Cron which I like very much on the A7r. It may be even better than the 40C/Minolta 40mm f2 M-Rokkor lenses. It performs extremely well on the camera and I am pleased with it. It is just bigger and heavier than the Minolta CLE and the adapter, so I normally carry the Minolta.
At this point, I am carrying 3 lens maker/mounts for my A7r. Most are Leica R, the M mount and the Contax mount. My 4 main lenses that I carry with the A7r are my Contax (C/Y) 21mm f2.8 Zeiss Distagon (with the Novoflex adapter and Novoflex rotating collar which I move to the Leica Novoflex adapter for larger non collared lenses), Leica R 28mm f2.8 Elmarit V2 (with Novoflex adapter), Minolta CLE MC 40mm f2 M-Rokkor lens with Phigment adapter, and my Leica R 100mm f2.8 Apo-Macro-Elmarit lens. If I use any other R lenses on the camera I remove the adapter from the R 28mm f2.8 V2. My next lens of choice in my R system is my 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens followed by many other R lenses.
