Quote:Thanks for the interesting link. Interesting to see how they openly address the sensor stack issue (I've been following the LensRentals articles). I seem to recall that one of the first Zeiss blog articles introducing the Loxia made a point of pointing out that the Loixa was more economical than a ZM + adapter which in retrospect seems like an indirect way of telling people that the ZM lenses are not so good on the A7x series...while not trying to kill ZM sales...Hmm, here is the Zeiss blog post. Maybe I was wrong about them comparing the price to a ZM+adapter, must have been another blogger.
The Otus 85 on A7R image is pretty compelling too...
But they do mention the filter stack:
"The Loxia lenses are optimized for digital full-frame sensors, and factor the approx. 2.5 mm thick low-pass and infrared filters in, situated in front of the sensor of the corresponding Sony cameras."
