I use a SONY NEX C3. I have the 18-55 kit lens and the CANON FD 50mm f:1.4SSC. Now i found an KONIKA HEXANON AR 40mm f:1.8.

The Konica 40mm f1.8 results are much much better when using a lens hood (more contrast), so it's not that compact anyway.

And it's a different focal length of course - 60mm vs 75mm ... so even on the crop sensor it'S close to a "normal" lens.

I find it pretty OK with a lens hood even at f1.8, but the purple fringing can be really annoying.
