philber: would you say that the zm35mmf2.8 is as sharp at infinity as it is at medium distances?
dpap, I am not a sharpness fiend, and not into 100% crops of corners wide open. I have a simple sharpness test which is pretty close to what pictures I take most: I take a picture with a lot of details and colours from close up to very distant objects (infinity starts well before things get very distant, and I am interested in what happens all the way through, not only where infinity starts. Then I look at a 100% crop of the centre. If it looks "almost" as sharp as though it were not a crop, that is sharp enough for me.
Does the NEX + Biogon 35C pass this test? Definitely. Though, in terms of rendition, it looks more like a ZE/ZF 50/85 f:1.4 than like an MP lens. Details are subtly integrated rather than highlighted.
I did one such example today for you. Please forgive the total lack of artistic merit. Aperture was f:8.0.
