How about a Contax G 90mm f2.8? I've seen pretty decent results from the lens floating around the NEX images thread. It seems to be a decent lens though I wish it was a stop faster and had a real focus ring.
Yeah, it's the focusing there. I need a manual focus lens to be good to focus, not tough and rough, which is what I've heard it's like focusing the G lenses. The 90/2.8 and 85/2.8 I understand are essentially the same design, but with very minor changes for the 5mm in focal length.
My 85/2.8 was one of my all time faves, but I sold it when I switched to Micro 4/3, since the FOV was a little awkward for a prime, and I wouldn't use it much. On the X-E1, though, it'll be the perfect length. We'll see. No rush.
