russian rangefinder lenses are cheap and good quality (for the price).

The M39 adapter is the smallest one, so picking a jupiter 50mm F2, or a Industar 50mm F2.8, or the Industar 50mm F3.5 pancake gives you the smallest Nex combo with a portrait lens.

Nitpick: the Industar 50/3.5 is only a "pancake" in SLR-mount version. In rangefinder mount it's about the same size as the others - which is still small compared with SLR lenses of course.

If you want cheap and really small (for carrying purposes anyway) you can't do better than a I-22 or collapsible I-50.
