Best cost effective ~100mm portrait lens for GFX 50Sii

Hi all, I’m relatively new to medium format digital (I shot a Fuji GA645 for many years).

I absolutely love my GFX 50Sii, and the 35-70 has been glued to it these past few months, which greatly blows my mind, every time. I also have the TTArtisan 21mm M lens adapted that does really well for my limited wide angle needs, so I’m used to manual focus.

I’m looking to adapt some “bokehlicious” lens for portraiture and longer reach purposes at around 135mm, maybe f/2.8 to keep cost/size down. What is your suggestion for a lens to pursue? I’d like to keep my costs low, so if there’s a sleeper that isn’t hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, all the better. I also don’t need to break my back, so if it’s not 3 pounds, that’s awesome.
