Thanks for any suggestions...

There are many 50's around so I have no idea about the best, but here are a few I've used with pleasing results:

Nikkor AIs 1.4

Nikkor AI 1.8

One I bought in Williamsburg VA just a few days back - Nikon E Series 1.8 (pancake) - amazingly good (and for $10 !!).

Industar 50 (retractable, 1959 and another 1965 example) - so sharp (see My Gallery).
