The only one that was worth a damn as far as lens bloom in bright light was the 28mm.

I have a 35mm Rokkor attached to my nex-7 now. in bright light it is useless. in good light it's pretty nice for what used to be a decorative piece in my home office.

The irony of legacy glass is that it ought to be dirt cheap for what it is, but thanks to mirrorless cameras they have got a new spring. You still have the qualities of yesteryear with for example low contrast. but if thats what you want it's just great.

But the real big great thing with older lenses is that they are fun to use.
