You won't be disappointed with the output though. Punchy, razor sharp, and with a lot of pop I don't see in any other lens I own (18-55, Sigma 30, 55-210, FD 50 1.4).

this.  i'd say just grab the contax 90mm off ebay.  it's arguably the best value lens on the market, and if you decide MF isn't working for you, just resell.  IQ wise, bokeh is subjective, but by all other measures it's about as good as it gets.

also, from my experience i'd recommend the metabones adaptor, as i've found it's focus action to be much smoother (though i've only used a kipon copy).
