One of the most compact (smaller than kit zoom anyway) NEX adapter + MF lens pair which will cost less than kindle is when Pentax 28/3.5 (Super Tak) is mounted on M42 screw. With some light and fancy adapter it feels more 'proper' to me than when 'small' and IMO overpriced RF lens is attached if style is your concern;-)

And you dont need to make any compromises wrt lens controls, like aperture ring missing (in some great Contax lenses) or the need to pp all pictures to fix something by default.

Anyway, with NEX ISO capabilities I would definitely recomend it despite being 3.5;)

There are some other longer (35, 37) and faster you can get as well, still paying less than for single quality RF lens...
