I got notice last pm that my lens Zeiss 16-35/4 had arrived. I went and picked it up today and it looks gorgeous but was kind of troubled by something - imside there was the usual package inserts and a "card" that had the name of the individual that had inspected my lens and performed QC. However my lens was missing a rear lens cap. KInd of makes me a bit nervous that Zeiss/Sony would ship a lens without a cap. Everything was still sealed and otherwise looks great. NO imperfections or dust noted on the rear exposed elements but I was disappointed to see that none-the-less. Luckily I have a couple extra lens and camera caps. I am sure after I take a few pictures though I will forget all about it.

That is weird. The QC is the lens, not the packaging so it makes sense it was not picked up by QC. But still, weird.

Inform the store, they probably will send you a replacement cap.

Without going through all the replies, you asked a question very similar to mine, a platform with multiple format lenses. To me, the answer is to buy one more body to use all the other lenses you have via an adapter. The 14/2.8mm was the sharpest one on my A7r..and 70-210F4 Minolta as well. The convenience of having a sharper lens makes you understand how good your camera is...and the convenience of having two mounted bodies saves a lot of time..and need to clean those dusts off sensor.
