Re: Sony A65 and a 50 yr old Nikon Lens, wow!

50mm primes have been optically very good for a long time. Almost any 50mm lens, even from 50 years ago or older, will give you very good results. Usually not at the widest aperture, though.

The problem with your Nikon lens is that you are probably using an adapter with a glass element. It reduces image quality.
