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

Russian 50mm Industar with M39 mount (but this model has a lousy minimum focus distance).

The Soviet rangefinder lenses are OK - like the Jupiter 8 - makes for a nice compact setup. However the quality control is not even as good as the East German lenses they ripped the designs from - my Jupiter is a fairly low contrast lens - and as you say, the minimum focus distance (1m) is over double that of my Super Takumar or Canon FD 50mm lenses. If it was a better lens then I might consider one of the helicoid M39 adaptors that acts like a collapsible extension tube.
