Legacy primes vs Zeiss FE primes?

Hi -- I was wondering if anyone has done or knows of any comparisons between some of the better legacy primes vs the new FE 35/FE 55 primes? I really want both of them but I'm struggling with the price tags. Currently have some legacies and the native FE28-70.

I'm curious if the IQ, sharpness, color rendition is just worlds apart or if the newer lenses are only slightly to moderately better? AF would be a benefit of course of the new lenses.

By legacy primes I'm referring to the ones that people generally agree are good, i.e.. Canon FDn 50 1.4, Minolta MD 50s, etc..

I might just rent them for a weekend maybe and play, is lensrentals.com the best option?

Thanks
