Re: Choosing MF lens for NEX5

Olympus OM 50mm 1.8 "made in Japan" is very sharp & cheap lens that is quite good even for wide open performance. I'm sure the 1.8 or 1.7s of nFD, rokkor, & takumar are good as well. I have yet to see a 50mm 1.4 lens with satisfactory wide open performance, so the larger aperture seems to just be extra weight/size for me.

as for 35mm, you got the cheapo fujian to use, althou the wide open performance is a bit wacky.
