Re: best 50mm / 35mm legacy lens for value/optical quality for nex-7

Another vote for the Canon FD 1.4 - good portrait lens with nice minimum focus distance. You are right to be concerned about finding a good 35mm though - it will probably spend more time on your camera. There was a thread about the Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 recently which is a great general purpose/closeup lens, but no longer as cheap as it was. Most 35mm lenses with aperture f2 or wider seem to be considered "premium" now.
