Default Samyang 7.5mm and SONY NEX5/LUMIX G3

Properly speaking - Samyang 7.5mm is not vignetting - it photographs own borders and hood.
This you cannot find with Samyang 8mm, made for APS-C (and of course 14/35/85mm made for full frame)

These quick-done-pictures are made with

NEX5 - Samyang 7.5mm (16:9, 3:2)
NEX5 - Samyang 8mm (16:9, 3:2)
LUMIX G3 - Samyang 7.5mm (16:9, 3:2, 4:3, 1:1)

Distance is ca. 20cm (NEX) or 30cm (G3) away from wood cabinet, light is right side (2 bulbs 60W).

All pictures are out of camera, only resized.

The G3 i handling the 7.5 a lot better than the NEX. Not only in terms of vignetting but exposure as well.

The Samyang 7.5mm fisheye was designed for the smaller micro four-thirds sensor, so is the NEX's aps-c sensor even a good match to be doing such a "test" with that lens?

I would say no. You might as well be trying to use a Nikon DX Nikkor on a full frame D700 or D3 body. This makes no sense to me.
