Advice on using Voigtlander M-Telephotos on NEX?

Hi there,

I'm looking to build a small rangefinder 3 lens set up for NEX (probably 5N), most likely with the very good compact, well priced VC lenses:

15mm F4.5
35mm F2.5 pancake

Now I've read only good things about the 90mm f3.5 (Sean Reid, Erwin Puts, Cameraquest), although this lens and the smaller, faster 75mm F2.5 don't really do too well on the photozone NEX tests, resolving significantly less than other vinatage or native lenses on the NEX-5.

Checking if anyone has any experience on the quality on NEX in the real world - or an option I may be overlooking? (compact 75-90mm).

I hear great things about the Contax G 90mm F2.8, although i'm not sure about the focus adaptor (or putting a champagne / silver lens on the black body haha).

Budget around $400-500 US or so. Optics and size are important, I don't tend to shoot large apertures much, but they are handy from time to time.

Any thoughts?
