Re: Good 50mm Lens For Sony Nex ... on a Budget?

My vote is for a Minolta MC PG Rokkor 50 F/1.4. It is a very sharp lens, one of the best I have. Just google for a review with samples. But to get it cheaper than the sony is a challenge. Certainly not on ebay where prices have exploded for legacy prime lenses of good brands. You will have to look somewhere where people have not noticed the changed situation, private second hand markets. Yes, focus peaking is very usefull. I have Nex6 and prefer to set it in program P. Then I chooce the stop for setting bokeh (field of depth), focus with peaking, and with the round wheel choose iso for an appropiate shutter value.

There are other options. Maybe Nikkor, Pentax, Konica Hexanon. You can get adapters for almost any lens. But to get the best lens will likely cost some money (up to 400 $ or more).
