Well, if you want a stay-on-camera lens, having focal length equivalent to ~50mm full-frame is more important than having huge apperture opening.

So, I'd look at 28-35mm lenses, this throws away the numerous 50mm options.

I use Industar-69 28/2.8 from half-frame "Chaika" rangefinder; it has its flaws (vignetting is the worst), but the quality is adequate. And, as far as I know, it's _the_ smallest lens when considered with adapter.
