What sans serif have old style figures?

I have to find a couple of sans serif faces with old style (hanging) figures. FF Info Text is one. Could you suggest a few others, please?

The most interesting ones I know of are Scala Sans and Legacy Sans.

I was surprised that a venerable face like Akzidenz Grotesk is available with old style figures:

The list is a fairly long one. Apart from the fonts mentioned there are, in no particular order:

Le Monde Sans
Fedra Sans
Avenir Next Pro
FF Fago
FF Eureka
FF Signa
FF Strada
John Sans
Apex Sans
Franklin Gothic (URW)

Sorry, no links. I am sure there are many more.

A few more for consideration...

Christian Robertson's Pill Gothic
Neil Summerour's Cynapse Pro
Alejandro Paul's Kautiva and Politica

I guess all of those ads don't work. Giacomo from Terminal Design has os figures as well.

Thanks, everyone! Not only do I now have a lot of suggestions for a font for a cvi assignment - you also reminded me of a lot of beautiful sans serif faces.

Christopher Burke's (HiberniaType) Pragma and Celeste Sans

Is this only in the regular weights, or can the rangers be in the smallcaps?

Monotype's Gill Sans OsF although I find them to be barney.
