Sony Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 FE ZA lens Vs. Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 lens for Nikon:

Versus1

 

Conclusion from DxOMark:

On paper at least the Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f1.8 ZA may seem somewhat unadventurous and over-priced given the f1.8 maximum aperture. In reality the lens is a bright 1.8TStops, and image quality is outstanding. Even the $1,000 price seems quite reasonable.

If you wanted an Otus 55mm f1.4 and Nikon D800 but couldn’t stretch to it, you could do a lot worse than buying an A7R and the Zeiss Sonnar 55mm f1.8 ZA.
