Legacy zoom recommendations?

I'm on the hunt for a manual zoom lens to cover focal lengths from approximately 28-70mm - maybe a little longer might be nice, but it would be primarily for handheld use !). It would be used on a NEX7.

I have adapters for the following (would buy another adapter for a really good lens!):

Olympus OM
Canon FD
Nikon AI
Konica AR

This may be an impossibility, but is there anything out there that would offer:

Very good IQ with minimal distortion
Relatively compact dimensions and light weight
Manageable CA

I appreciate that image quality of zooms isn't likely to match prime lenses, but I'd quite like to find a lens that I can attach when I don't want to be swapping lenses.

Any recommendations welcomed
