Hello ! This is my first port in this forum ?

I would suggest you the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 85mm F2, in Rollei QBM mount. It's an excellent lens and it's virtually half the cost of the Contax/Yashica mount version. I got mine for $80. Probably not THE sharpest lens but still very good.

Another excellent choice is the Tamron SP 90mm F2.5 Macro (adaptall mount). This lens is extremely sharp and believe it or not, cheap.

for my part, in this focal length, my favorite is the Leitz Elmarit 90 mm F2.8 (German version) extra, full aperture
APS-C >>> but on my APS-C (Pentax, Nikon, SONY A6000 nex3n) I use excellent 50mm becoming bright 80mm (often Tomioka, Mamiya, Pentax, 55mm F1.4)
