Portrait range for 35mm (24x36) is 85mm, but Sony has smaller sensor. For Sony portrait range from 50 to 60mm. If you would like to use M42 lenses, my best recommendation Tomioka 55mm1.4. Tomioka was japan optical company. Tomioka made  M42 lenses for Chinon, Ricoh, Cosina, Sears, Porst  ..........

Exaktar 55mm/1.4


Rikenon 55mm 1.4

Cosinon 55mm 1.4

Porst  55mm 1.4

CHINON 55mm F1.4

Tomioka  55mm 1:1.4

Tomioka has also 1.2 version lenses, but they are expensive.
