Get legacy lenses. Buy a cheap Canon FD to NEX adapter for 20USD and a 50mm or a 35mm lens. These are not NEX original lenses but if you do street photography I cant recommend legacy lenses enough.

The lens is a Canon FD 35mm with a CPL filter on an NEX 7, shot at f2.0

Don't take this the wrong way but this image suffers from camera shake and it looks like the point of focus is in front of the girl. Nothing is sharp in this photo. Without the camera shake that would be a bad thing in some cases but it all underlines the difficulty of using manual focus legacy lenses.

Sharpness is a bourgeois concept
