According to this:

The MC Rokkor-PG is the cream of the crop. The MD one appears needing much harder stopping down and even then it runs behind.

Have you tried the crop plastic fantastic 35/1.8 lens on it yet? It covers almost full frame. Edges and corners aren't hot then, but the center is *quite* sharp. It's quite the surprise given the price of the lens is just barely over $100 these days.

I don't have a full frame camera, but instead I've used that with a focal reducer ($100 Roxsen A-mount to E-mount). The auto focusing on that lens isn't great though...
