I have the nFD 50/3.5 Macro, and, while I like it well enough, I don't think it's all that special.

I would say another item to look at for near 50mm, relatively fast, and phenomenally sharp would be a Contax G 45/2. They're getting awfully pricey these days, though.

Nex-7 with kit lenses, Contax G 35, and a number of legacy lenses (mostly Canon FD)

No, I don't like the FDn lenses either; lightweight plastic imitations in some cases, of former Canon glory.

The FD 50/3.5 Macro, which I proposed, is considered one of the sharpest lenses ever tested at the Pentax forum. Sorry I can't give you the link because DPR blocks out any link from the P.F.
