How did I do, guys? re: Canon FD lenses

I just got the NEX 5N and picked up these lenses in 9+ out of 10 condition to get started on manual like all you other cool folks.

Canon FDn 24mm f/2
Canon FDn 50mm f/1.4
Canon FDn 80mm f/1.8

Is this a good start? i.e. this set won't limit my learning any time soon? No interest in macro or ultratele work yet. Just vacation photos (museums, landscapes, candid portraits, and street).

What kind of filter should I get to address CA or purple fringing that I've seen in some samples? What else do I need?

Thanks all!
