Nice post!

Smaller and lighter than the MD 50/1.7 is the MD 50/2.0. That is a completely different lens and is remarkable for being 100% sharp and usable right from the wide open aperture. Quality of sharpness, color and bokeh are about the same as the 50/1.7 and it's small size make it my everyday favorite. Has good coatings so little lens flare.

I also have the 55mm MC Rokkor 1.9 which is as you say, very very sharp and I've used it on my Panasonic G1 as well as my 5R, especially for portrait work. It is very easy to get a clean focus.

I've never used the 2.0, but it looks pretty compact. The 1.9 takes really nice shots, and is really light and compact. Agree about the sharpness.

I'm surprised the 45/50 will even work on the A7. The throat is really small which was the complaint back in the day.
