Optical quality of vintage classics VS modern cheap primes by TTArtisan/7Artisans?

Hi there.

I'm planning to buy a fast manual 50mm lens for Fuji X-T20. I had some limited experience with vintage glass a few years ago with MC Helios 44K-4 and adapted Industar 50-2 on a Pentax K-5 body.

I'm considering either getting a new 7Artisans 55 mm F1.4 II or TTARTISAN 50MM F1.2... OR adapt a CZJ Pancolar 50mm F1.8 (which costs around the same as those mentioned lenses) or SMC Pentax-M (or A) 50mm F1.7 (usually for half the price of Pancolar).

Now, bokeh and mechanical quality aside, how those lenses would compare IQ wise? Sharpness, CA, flare resistance ETC?
