Other lenses and DxOMark conclusion can be seen here:
“Designing lenses smaller than their retro-focus equivalents remains a challenging prospect. However Sony has introduced a couple of ‘pancake’ type primes and compact zooms that perform well. The range also includes several high-performance primes. Although image quality assessment based on the 24-Mpix Sony NEX-7 means that sharpness scores aren’t quite as expected. Whether that’s due to the limitations of current lens designs only time will tell.”
