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

Well I'm very impressed by both samples from the Canon FD's on this thread. I am guessing they don't do so well at wider apertures,

better than you'd think, my SSC 24/2.8 & 24/1.4  are both sharp wide open, the corners improve as you stop down

but it wouldn't much matter to me as I am almost always using wide angles at around f/8~f/11. From the two samples posted, they seem near-perfect stopped down, even on an A7r ... a lot of fun for around $70.

Pin sharp on a NEX-7 is also promising,

I have samples in my flicker feed, they should be taged.

as the lens should comfortably double up as a 35mm (equiv) lens in APS-C crop mode on an A7r. Quite useful.

The 24/2.8, 50/1.4 & 85/1.8 are nearly the same size, they make a very nice trio.

Hmmm... I may also have to get me one, I can sense a price rise coming.
