Re: Small/phenomenal manual legacy prime lens

Thanks I just bought the Rokkor 45mm/f2 and an adapter for less than $50, waiting for it to arrive now. I don't really want any more SLR lens recommendations as I am looking for something small and pocket-able (including adapter!) yet fast with good colours, sharpness and bokeh.

So far my options for rangefinders/non-SLR lenses under $500 or so seem to be:

Jupiter 8 50mm f2.0 ($50)

Jupiter 3 50mm f1.5 ($150)

Olympus PEN F 38mm f1.8, 40mm f1.4 ($200)

Voigtlander 40mm f1.4 ($500)

Voigtlander 35/1.4 ($600)

maybe Leica 40mm f/2 Summicron ($600-$1000?)

Any others I'm missing?

Which is the best bang for the buck? Which lens would you put on the camera if that was the only lens you could put on it? (I know 2 different questions).
