I just got a very nice bonus and have decided to use part of it on a lens that I would never have otherwise bought and am looking for ideas. I am completely open to native or adapted lenses AF or MF. So, if money were no object, what would be the one lens you either have or would get for your NEX?

While the Otus is a very nice lens, it is rather big for a mirrorless camera, I think something like the Leica M 50/2 Cron APO Asph would be more inline with the size of the camera.

The M 90AA is nice, as is the CV 125 APO macro, the FD 50 & 85 f1.2L's are nice, the FD 35/2.8 tilt shift is an amazing piece of glass, the Contax 50 & 85 anniversary f1.2's, the Contax 28/2 Hollywood, the Tokina 90 macro.
