Re: Recommend an inexpensive fast MF portrait prime for NEX ?

The OM 50/1.8(Made in Japan on the name ring) is a great lens, it's hard to beat at its price point, only I like the feel of my MC lenses more.
The great thing about the NEX is it can mount just about any lens(other than the really small formats [eg. D mount] and a few mounts that don't have adapters. eg. Topcor UV),
Jupiter8 50/2 is a good bang for the buck, it's an M39/LTM RF lens so it's very compact vs an SLR lens which is great for travel, and it's based on a Zeiss design.
