NEX 5N - Best Prime Lenses for Bokeh


I am a newbie to photography and have set my mind on the NEX 5N as my 1st ILC camera.

I will buy the body only, however, undecided on which lens to pick up as primary.

I intent to do portraits, and specially like the bokeh effect.

I have done my bit of research and found out that the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Autofocus prime lens is best.

1) What adapter do you recommend for this prime lens?

2) Do you think I will be able to do Direct Manual Focus with this lens? meaning controlling the focus either from the touchscreen or the camera controller?

3) Do you recommend any other good lens apart from the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G for portrait (and creamy bokeh).

Many thanks in advance.
