I'm sure any good fast legacy lens will serve you well. I bought a Canon FDn 50mm f/1.4 for about $50 a couple months ago and it works very well for me. It's pretty soft at 1.4 but sharpens up quickly, even 2 is pretty good. It's great for low light video at 1.4. It's incredibly sharp stopped down, and infinity focus is perfect with my $9 rainbow imaging adapter - no problems going past infinity for example.

Honestly just get whatever brand you feel most nostalgic about and have a blast.
