What are your favorite adapted lenses for Fuji?

I saw a photo recently that looked "vintage".

It was in black and white and low resolution - so it could have been any camera. What made it look vintage was the lens.

A sort of swirly "nervous" bokeh - less than technically perfect optics.

Which has me thinking - Fuji has gone to all this effort to produce a robust "film simulation" engine, but their lenses are often technically perfect.

Could I achieve an even more "vintage" look with adapted glass?

What are your favorite lenses to adapt to the X-Mount? (GFX also welcome, I aspire to own a GFX camera one day)

Also what is your favorite Fuji body to adapt lenses to? Higher resolution displays and more modern focusing aids can help get good results.
