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

I suggest you try the Pentacon 50mm f1.8 in m42 mount. Very cheap and good quality. The min focus distance is very useful 0.33m, which is closer than most.

I tried a lot of 50mm primes from Minolta, Pentax to Zeiss, Schneider. The Pentacon is very good for the price. Of those I had tried, I like the Schneider best, but expensive (but still cheaper than the SEL50)
