Need Recommendations for a 50mm on A7II

I'm looking for a 50mm landscape lens that will fit the A7II either natively or Canon MCII adapter. Currently the only 50mm that I have is a Canon FD 50MM 3.5 mounted via Fotodiox Pro adapter. I really don't want to have to spend more on another adapter, but if it's reasonable I'm open to suggestions.

I'd like something faster and better IQ. Would the Sony 50mm F/1.8 do any justice or can I get more for my money with another brand, refurbished or used? Since it's for landscape I have no problem with non AF or even Legacy. I also don't want a plastic mount like the lower end Canon 50mm. Lastly I'd like it to be a true 50mm when mounted.

The downside is I can only spare around $300 and yes I know for my budget I shouldn't expect miracles.

Thanks for any suggestions.
