Re: best 50mm / 35mm legacy lens for value/optical quality for nex-7

This is my choice:

1. You can not go wrong with FD lenses. Pentax 1.4/50 is also great.

2. Also, consider Konica Hexanon 1.7/50 and 1.8/40

3. Helios 44M-x. It is not 50mm, it is 2.0/58, but great lens and cheap as dirt.

P.S. Above mentioned PEN F 38/1.8 is great, but not so cheap.
