Re: Recommend an inexpensive fast MF portrait prime for NEX ?

You can not go wrong with with any of the above mentioned.

Still, do not pass over this lenses:

Pancolar / Pentacon 1.8/50 - perfect cheap portrait lens.

Helios 44M-(something). Yes it is f2.0 but it is perfect cheap portrait lens. It is always in my bag for portrait business, together with Jupiter 37A 3.5/135, while more expensive brands stays home :-). Silver Jupiter-9 from 1955 (Contax/Kiev mount) is likely to join them.

The catch is to find good copy of each.
