What is the smallest and fastest lens for E-mount? (NEX5)

I own the SLR Magic f 1.7 - is there something comparable or better - but as compact?

I would say Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS would be close. It is slightly longer (no adapter involved) and thicker but also lighter.

Of course not counting E 16/2.8, E 20/2.8 and FE 35/2.8 which are all smaller and lighter.

Native large aperture E mount lenses are:

E 24mm f/1.8

E 35mm f/1.8 OSS

E 50mm f/1.8 OSS

FE 55mm f/1.8

Otherwise numerous adapted lenses will work.

Yes, that Sony E 35mm f/1.8 probably is it. With OSS. I haven't followed the market for a while and thought other brands came up with similar lenses - the SLR 35mm f 1.7 is a c mount TV lens and has quite some character for all its faults. And it is fast and small. The whole meaning of the NEX system.

Depends on the focal length. I would agree that for 40 mm, it is the Voigtlander. For 90mm I would say it is the Rokkor CLE.

My smallest lenses are the Industar 69(far left) then my Canon LTM 35/2.8(next lens to the right) I've used it on my A7r, seems to work great, and it is indeed small but not as fast as the CV's above.
