The Sigma primes are generally your best bet. They're cheap, sharp, and have good wide options (19 and 30 which are hard to find in cheap legacy).

Next would be pretty much any 50 f1.8 like the Canon FD, Nikon, etc. I would just spend the extra for the SEL50, but a legacy 50 f1.8 will be fairly sharp and cheap.

For a zoom, the Minolta 35-70 f3.5 is very sharp (it was rebranded as a Leica).
