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


Thank you Pieter. I think I knew that would be the answer; so it will be a mix of three: the new (to me) Loxia 50 f2 and the two other full frame 50s on e-mount adapters.

After long pondering I came up with a short list of 7 lenses, one for each day. The reasons for selecting these are various from favourite to little used, even to never used.

1: Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 2.8/50 for bellows
2: Hugo Meyer & Co Görlitz Kinon Superior I 1:1.6 f=5 cm
3: Bell & Howell Super D Proval 2 inch f/1.4
4: Vega 11U 3/54
5: Fujinon 1:2.2 f=55 mm
6: Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 1:1.2 f=58mm
7: Lomography x Zenit New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens 1.9/58

Now let's hope there is some bearable weather.

    Okay, I'm in.

    Actually, my calendar says I'm on paid time off for the week of the 10th and I've been thinking how to fill the time

    I got a 55mm that's only been used once or twice and a Helios 44 (58mm I think). Will check my Nikon gear to see if there's any 50's primes lurking around.
