The Pentax Takumar versions (SMC, Super, Super Multi Coated) are my favorite. The 50 f1.4 can be had around $50. Make sure you know if you're getting a Pentak K mount or M42 mount so you know what adapter you need.

Second choice would be the Minolta 50 f1.4. Then a Canon FD or Nikon.

The cheap $10 eBay adapters work fine for these.

Super Tak is about $80-90 now (that's coming down from over $100).  The other versions are even more expensive.  8 blades Super Tak also more expensive.
