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.

Interesting, which of these would be more compact, with an adaptor? It seems the adaptors are pretty chunky, are there a type of lenses that have smaller adaptors but are as good and inexpensive?
