Re: Best manual fast 50mm prime that performs well on e-mount (with adapter)?

Regarding the Zeiss, are all three of these the same?

Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* Manual Focus Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 ZS Planar T* Manual Focus Lens for Universal (M42) Screw Mount

I gather the Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f/2.0 you mentioned is a rangefinder? Does that lens outperform the Planar f/1.4's listed above?

I'm feeling a bit worried about the rangefinder NEX compatibility question, and now I'm starting to get mixed up with all the choices -- thanks for bearing with me!
