Good M42 lenses that are sharp(or not soft) wide open

I use the Nex 5r

I've decided to get the Helios 44-2, and there's a m42-NEX speedbooster that comes w/ it. Both costs about 120USD.

Any good M42 lenses to consider from the focal length of 9mm to 135mm

I kinda want f2.8s but it's probably difficult so F3 to F4 is fine as well. Also, I want them to be sharp enough wide open.

If there's no other lens, I'm fine as the helios is balls to the walls.
