The Olympus OM 50/1.8 gets my vote. It is one of the most compact 50mm SLR lenses, it can be bought cheap and an OM adapter is very cheap. Just make sure you buy a made in Japan version. The later MC versions of this lens have better coatings.

How do you as a potential buyer identify one of those lenses as being "Made in Japan", say from an ebay listing?

it says: "made in Japan" written on it's front 'name ring' ( serial number is on the side of the bayonet )

see the various versions at this excellent site about Olympus, in German though:,8/50_mm
