Favourite lens for Nex?

As there are so many lens options for the Nex series, including manual focus legacy lenses I thought I would start another thread about it. I am trying to get a feel for what the best lenses are.

Sony Zeiss 24mm F1.8 comes up a lot. Contax g 90, 45, 35, 28, 21 come up with some question over adapter quality.

Viogtlander comes up a lot.

Some Zuiko, some Pen F some OM and some Minolta MD come up as well.

One of my best lenses at the moment is the Fuji 35mm F1.8 xmount.  I have a Fuji Xmount to Nex adapter on the way so I can post how this works out.

In the Sony range it seems 35mm F1.8, 50mm F1.8, 18-200 and 10-14 are recommended.

What's your favourite lens?

At the moment my favourite is Contax g Zeiss 90mm Sonnar F.8.
