Put me on the list - I probably will participate. I have my E-mount 50/1.8 OSS and A-mount 50/1.4 with me, one of those it will be

I have too many lenses that qualify for week 50 (14)   

So I will use my seven least used ones (according to the tally in my LR catalog)

10: Meyer Görlitz Domiplan 50/2.8
11: Helios 44-4 (58/2)
12: Takumar 55/2
13: OM Zuiko 50/1.4
14: MD Rokkor 50/2
15: M39 Elmar 50/3.5
16: Pentacon 50/1.8

So my week 50 in the year with Meyer will start and end with a Meyer (design) lens

I'm in.

I might even be able to manage 7 separate 50s (well one of them is a 52..) - so might be able to do one each day - although one is the industar, which is not exactly my favourite lens...

I'm in - still have to make a list of the lenses and camera's i'll use. There's a new 50 on the way (50f1.8 FE is very low priced at this moment you can get this slow but still ok lens for 159€ in the Benelux region - in a black friday deal).
It'll be tested with the other lenses.

There's a thought Bob, I could do a week with "pure" 50's, replace the 11th with an M-Summicron 50/2 DR and the 12th with a Takumar 50/4 macro.
I feel the stress of too many choices is grabbing me by the throat

Count me in as well.
Same dilemma like others, too many lenses in the cabinet to choose from that qualify for week 50
Hence one different nifty-fifty each day

Well, my 50s also outnumber any other focal length - so I will give it a try. My aim is to have less than four desperation shots!

This weekend I won ** this ** on eBay. The seller never used the word Loxia in their description which may have meant several potential bidders missed it. If it is as good as the seller say it is then I have a bargain I think. What a golden opportunity to give it a whirl on my a7ii, so count me in please.

My only other adapted 50s are a Minolta MD 50 f1.7 and a Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 50 f2.9. I also have a Canon FD tilt shift 35 f2.8 on an e-mount adapter, would it count if I used it on my NEX-6 as a 52.5mm?

Congrats Brian, that's a real good price for that lens

Unfortunately week 50 is limited to 50-59 mm focal length lenses, "equivalent" FOV or similar calculations don't change that
