glad you mentioned zhongyi, I bought one for use with exactly that lens fd 50mm 1.4, adapter fitted both body(nex 7 & 5n) & lens, but I was unable to turn focus ring to infinity because as you probably know the rear inner lens extends rearwards, & was touching the glass in the adapter this happened with 20mm,28mm, 35mm lenses it worked just fine with 100mm macro & 80-200mm zoom.did you have this problem ?.

regards keith.

No, no problems like this with 24/2.8, 28/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.4, 100/2.8. All mine are FDn - are yours the older breech lock FD?
