Newbie question - legacy lens - are these any good ?

Hi, I have Nex-5N with kit lens, it is my first camera with interchangeable lens. I'm very hapy with it - big difference compared to my previous compacts.

I was thininkg about buing additional lenses (at first SEL50F18) , but by chance I found that my father-in-law has several legacy lenses that he is not using for 30 years.

I have no experience about this so I do not know if any of these are good and could be be used. Those lenses are from 70's, Praktika kamera. I know it would mean to use MF, but I udnerstand that NEX is quite good at this and I'm happy to try new things.

Can u please advise if any of these makes sense to keep/use and if so, what adapter to buy.

1) Pancolar 1.8/50 Carl Zeiss Jena
2) Sonnar 3.5/135 Carl Zeis Jena
3) Flektogon 2.4/35 Carl Zeiss Jena
4) Tessar 2.8/50 Carl Zeiss Jena
5) Takumar 1.8/55
6) Fujinon 1.8/55
7) Pentagon auto 1.8/50
8) Helios 2/58

Thanks is advance,

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
