My Minolta MD 50mm F2 is an excellent lens both with a inexpensive adapter and with the Lens Turbo II every bit a 36mm F1.45.

I’ll besides recommend the Fotasy 35mm F1.6 (3516E). It seems to be closely related to newer C-mount APS-C lenses with the same specifications. It is smaller and lighter than adapting an SLR lens. The aperture has twice the number of blades as the Minolta so it remains much more round when stopped down.

The Zonlai/Discover/7Artisans 25mm F1.eight is a decent wide angle. There are too some C-mountain APS-C lenses with the same specifications merely different optivcs that are pretty skillful. I have the greenish band version.

The Sony Due east 20mm F2.8 is a very useful little lens. It is a lot like using a cellphone photographic camera.

There will be no new lens combo cheaper than new Sigma 19mm due east mountain or try kit lens at between f5.vi to f 8 .

I already have NIKON 35 mm f2D and Nik to nex adapter and information technology is good only then I already had that for NIKON full frame.

update:

Looks similar there are many more cheaper Chinese lenses.

The mount that volition give y’all access to the greatest range of manufacturers would almost likely be M42. This was designed to be an internationally accepted common mount and was in faddy for decades. The range of available lenses runs from Zeiss to Takumar to Soviet lenses down to Japanese manufacturers. The drawback is that the adapter is quite large for an Eastward mount photographic camera.

Meike/Neewer have released a range of transmission, APS-C, E mount lenses recently that range around $80 a piece. These are well made, metal bodied lenses with modern coatings and are competent optically. Amid them are a 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/2.0, 35mm f/1.iv, and a Detect branded 25mm f/i.eight. (there are more, these are the lenses I own). They work well, are modest, well suited to the Sony APS-C bodies, and have the reward of not requiring an adapter.

If you want to employ adapted lenses I would recommend LTM (Leica Thread Mount) too known as M39. It is a 39mm thread mount common with early Leica rangefinder cameras. The adapter is small, light and simple. Lenses are available ranging from Leica to Catechism to post-war Soviet copies of Zeiss lenses with price ranges to match. While I personally recommend the Meike/Neewer lenses for what yous want to do, I would also recommend picking up an LTM adapter and a Jupiter-8 50mm f/2.0 Sonnar. It is a unique portrait combo available for under $50 total.

I take a couple of Minolta 50mm f1.four lenses.  The Sony 50mm f1.8 is way ameliorate. Not an expensive lens, and with the autofocus and OSS, it makes the Minolta 50mm lenses next to useless. I like the longer 135mm f2.8 Minolta lens though. Really precipitous, but not very useful for your intended apply!

The Sigma 19mm is a not bad lens and very cheap. You should also consider the Sony 20mm for street photography. Information technology is great being a pancake lens and the extra toll over the Sigma adds OSS and more than autofocus points. I really like the colours of Sony lenses.
