Sony A7r - Lens shortage, what lens shortage?

Sony A7r Sigma 20mm f/1.8

For a camera that has very few native lenses available for it I seem to have acquired an awful lot for my Sony A7r.

MF via adapters - Voigtlander 20mm (SLR), Nikon 28mm, Nikon 50mm, Nikon 85mm, Nikon 100mm. 12 in all. Not bad considering.

And some of these are great, some are not so great, some are fast, some not, some have corner to corner sharpness, some don't. But all of them have one thing in common. When bolted in front of that amazing sensor all of them produce images I'm really pleased with. In the end I'm happy with what I have. I haven't spent a fortune on them and I have a very flexible collection that will handle pretty much anything I want. Nothing longer than 100mm, but with the cropping possibilities of the 36MP sensor and the difficulties of DOF with long lenses on this sensor format that's not an issue for me. 

And while I and others have been discussing all sorts of options on the lens front for the A7r I have also been taking a LOT of pictures with it and just getting on with using it. Because, as far as I'm concerned, no matter which of the above lenses I use, this is the best image quality I've ever produced with any camera I've ever owned and / or used. 

And despite some peoples attempts to tell me different and my occasional moans about the size and weight of some of this and the lack of DOF, this is as close to the best digital camera ever as I'm going to get at this current time. And that's no small thing.
