Personally, personally, if I were in the market for a ~$300-400 Big Name MF fifty for use on EF/M I'd get a ZE Planar and enjoy microconrast, and all advantages of the native mount.

In my tests the 1.4/50 Planar in Contax version proved to be sharper than my ZE. This could be due to sample variation, but I also read about similar findings.
While I think the Z lenses are absolutely wonderful, the 1.4/50 is the exception. The lenses to get are the 2/28, 2/35, 2/50 and 2/100 ZF with aperture ring (or ZE without).
