Recommendation for Nikon MF lenses on NEX?

I have used FD lenses and also MD, M42, M-mount and Pentax K on various mirrorless. I've never used Nikon.

I really like the FD color and contrast, but not the focus ring. I love the Pentax M42 focus ring, but not the contrast.

Any chance the Nikon legacy glass brings both together???

I'm looking for a fast 35mm (2.0 is fine, but might consider 1.4) and possibly a 50mm macro if they make one at 2.8.

I get confused by all the generations and types of Nikon lenses. Can anyone recommend something for the above, that has solid color, contrast and a buttery focus ring?? Good bokeh is also hoped for.
