Legacy Lens Decision: Canon FD 50mm (1.4 or 1.8) vs. Konica Hexanon 40mm (1.8)

Anyone have any experience with the Hexanon or either of these 50mm Canons. I'm entertaining the 40mm thinking that it would be more versatile to work with.

Specifically, it would be nice to know how much either needs to be stopped down to be sharp, and any experience with distortion/chromatic abberation would also be nice.

This would go with a newly purchased EPL1. And if anyone has a 'better' idea, have at it! Thanks.
