C/Y Planar that you've linked to is certainly a great lens too, but it's not small at all, average size for SLR 50mm f1.4 lens.

There is also the C/Y Planar 50 1.7, which is an extraordinarily good lens, and its a bit smaller and also cheaper than the 1.4. I have no direct evidence but some have said it's even sharper than the 1.4.  If you can afford it, it works beautifully with the Metabones Speed Booster to give about a 1.2 opening, and very close to the original 50mm FL.
