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

many good suggestions, one cannot go wrong with any of them

for what it's worth, I once made a sharpness shootout of over 30 'normal lenses' using my NEX5N including most of the above mentioned. There are sets by lenses, f stop, and of 100% center and corner crops:



One must consider sample variation.

This test was meant first of all for myself, to get to know my lenses better. It was done impromptu during the only few days in a year when I have access to most of my lenses. As such the set up won't be ideal.

Please feel grateful for me to share, if someone instead knocks me for how the test was performed I won't even bother to respond.

Nevertheless I hope that it will be of help for someone, and productive criticism resp., suggestions on how best to perform are of general interest and very welcome.
