-any FL, but mainly looking at around 50mm

-budget is less than $500, closer to $100 preferred

-max aperture f2 (even better if f1.8 or f1.4).

-best bokeh, sharpness and colours as good or better than my X100 Fuji lens.

So my question - what is the lightest and smallest (adapter included) manual legacy lens I can find used or new with the following constraints-


I recently posted comments about the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Series E, at the following link:

I think it would meet many of the parameters you provided.

This will give you an idea of the size of the lens when mounted (NEX-5n) using a generic Nikon > NEX adapter:
