Nikon E 50mm F1.8 compared to SEL1855 and SEL18200 on NEX5

For about 50 euros or less you find the Nikon E 50mm f1.8 on ebay.
Here is a series of test shots made on a tripod of the same scene.
The Nikon lens seems a bit sharper and best at F2.8

Hope you will find this usefull when deciding to buy this widely available cheaper lens. Shots were taken with the NEX5

Nikon E 50mm at F1.8 ISO 200 1/160 sec

Nikon E 50mm at F2.8 ISO 200 1/60 sec

SEL1855 at 51mm F5.0 ISO 200 1/20 sec

SEL18200 at 50mm F5.6 ISO 200 1/20 sec
