Industar looks good but it is f2.8. The Contax-G looks great though it has gone up in price a lot. Is it much better than the SEL5018 if at all accounting for the lack of AF (I would not want to get the $300 adapter)?

Not much beats a NEX 50mm 1.8, and I've had a lot of sharp MF lens, and only my Nikon 105 AIS lens seem as sharp.

Oh, I've had the Contax 45mm F2, and I think the Nex 50mm beats it, BUT if you go Contax G, the 28mm 2.8 is tops in my book.
