It's not just end users that are picking up on mirrorless. It's optical companies, like Zeiss, that are capitalising on the possibilities afforded by still-youthful mirrorless mounts that don't already have legions of long-time users.
Background Blur have a great writeup comparing the Sony 35/2,8, a Panasonic 20/1,7, and the Loxia 35/2. While I disagree with them regarding the Panasonic 20/1,7's OOF rendering (they call it 'distracting' and 'harsh'), I do agree that Loxia is a powerful alternative.
I'd like to see high-quality native manual focus lenses with electronic coupling come to more mounts.
