I know you are looking for a manual lens.

But for e-mount, I dont know how you could go wrong with the SONY E-50 f1.8 OSS.

The steady shot in low light at f1.8 is really good especially hand held. Just a thought.

Thanks -- main reason is I want the lens to work on both the NEX7, and also the A7/A7r if I wind up going down that path. The E50 will only be useful on the NE7, that's the catch.

I spent about an hour discussing the A7 and A7R with a Sony rep. on Saturday. Who told you the E 50 would not work on the new FF bodies?  I happened to have my E 50-1.8 with me and I took a lot of photos with it mounted on the A7. The combo worked perfectly!
