DxOMark are doing their measurements on unprocessed RAW files. They identified the best model in different categories.

According to DxOMark the SONY NEX Top  Primes include  Sony 50mm f/1.8Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZASony SEL35F18 35mm f/1.8. Interesting enough the best prime DxOMark selected is  the Sony 50mm f/1.8 costs less then 300 USD and the second best (Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZA)  is below 1000 USD. When it comes to Zoom Lenses my favorite one the Sony SEL1018 10-18mm scores highest.

One think to keep in mind is that while the SONY lenses score low compared to  Canon L lenses we use. However the quality of the photos that you can get from a Canon L lense compared to the SONY lenses do not provide a different image, at least for me.
