NEX crop factor - 1.5x with ALL lenses?

I'm a little unclear in the crop factor of the NEX when using third party lenses on it (old rangefinder lenses to new DSLR lenses) - it doesn't depend on the lens does it? I heard it was 1.5x, then someone with a 40mm lens said it was equivalent to an 80mm lens, so I was wondering if someone could clear this up.
