I'm thinking of Samyang Lenses for filming but they don't have 50mm! I don't know what to do.

try legacy all-manual lenses for the moment

You are manually focusing at this point. If you can manage to use manual aperture, you might be able to pick up a decent 50-60mm M42 lens and adapter for $30.00 to $100.00. If you are handy, you can "de-click" the aperture of some lenses by partially disassembling, and removing the ball bearing on the aperture ring. See mflenses forum for examples.

Samyang may bring out a fast 50mm lens, but not soon.
