Hey Lucy

Hey Lucy -- NEX-5 & Rollei Planar 50mm f1.8 @ f1.8.

This lens reminds me of the Contax Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.7.  Both are very sharp wide open and extremely sharp stopped down just a tad.  The colours are nice too.  However, the price of the Rollei version is an order of a magnitude lower than the Contax version, mostly because the Contax 50mm f1.7 can be used on the Canon bodies without much trouble, but not so with the Rollei 50mm f1.8.
