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

As the topic says... what would be a fast (1.8 at least), inexpensive (as NEX is going to be my backup camera used mainly for travels) portrait (i.e. nice bokeh) manual focus lens that I could use with a simple adapter (don't need AF confirm or other bells and whistles).

I understand that NEX can use Canon's FD lenses (which are incompatible with Canon EOS).

What about Oly OM, Nikkor, etc. ?

Any brands that can't be easily adapted (e.g. no infinity focusing) ?

Any known bargains out there ?
Any help is much appreciated !

I have owned several, all MD Mount as I have the adapters for them.  Almost every lens out there has a NEX, E-Mount adapter.

The ones I currently have are 1- 28mm Tokina MD 2- 45mm Rokkor.  Both produce top notch images.
