Liveview on the 5d2 is very good and the lens is a joy to use. I also use it with adapter on the Nex (Nex 5n) and it is fantastically good wide open. I do not even use the focus peaking feature of the Nex, when focus is acheved the evf starts flickering ever so slightly and it helps. I tried peaking with different colours and it was not for me. There is no point in stopping down a lens like this, the 50/1.4 EF would be the better choice. I quite like the fact that the Eos to Nex adapter has no aperture iris and I use the lenses only wide open. I hope you find a reasonably priced 50/1.2L. failing that, there are quite a few old 55 or 50 1.2 fd lenses that can be adapted to the Nex with a simple adapter. With aperture, to boot.
