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

I'll add my enthusiasm for minolta rokkor lenses. I've picked up two so far: 45mm f2 and a 50mm f1.7. Both cost less than $50 on Craig's list. I've also picked up a couple of Canon FD lenses and adapted some old Olympus lenses from my film days. I've also purchased a Leica 90mm from Craig's list. All of these have their pluses and minuses but were rather inexpensive except the Leica.
