...So my question - what is the lightest and smallest (adapter included) manual legacy lens I can find used, with the best bokeh and sharpness for $75 (including adapter). Any FL, but mainly looking at around 35mm, 50mm and longer.

Light + small = rangefinder lens

Cheap = Russian

Try a Jupiter 8 50/2 with an L39 adapter... handy hint is to buy a Zorki film camera with the lens for less than you can buy the lens standalone!

Light and small also = olympus zuiko.
