Canon FD 24 F2.8 SSC. No vignetting, no funky magenta smearing. $65.

I ordered one of these from ebay. If the 35mm 2.0 ssc is any indication then I expect this lens to be stellar

The SSC 24/2.8 should do you very well, it was pin sharp on my NEX-7, and the corners looked good on my A7r, it's size is great, feels just right in hand, I'd use it more but I bought the SSC 24/1.4 Aspherical and use that much more, it's a great lens and it's not that heavy.

The 35/2.8 Tilt/Shift is stellar, it's sharp like a macro on my NEX-7.

I'm also using the Leica Elmarit M 24/2.8 ASPH on my A7r, corners are acceptable, it has minor colorshift, and little to no smearing.

The Rokkor MC 24/2.8 is also good.

The Yashica 24/2.8 in C/Y is an option but hard to find.

The OM 24/2.8 is fairly good, I like the 21/3.5 it's the same size on camera as my M Elmarit 24.

The Leica R 24/2.8 isn't too bad, I've had adapter issues
