Helios 44-2. Jupiter 8 is also good (but even better would be saving up a bit and getting a Jupiter 9).
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50/1.4, obviously.

is that thing radioactive?
Mir 1b ftw
Barely. Just like a lot of fast lenses at the time.
Even the little Industar-61 L/D has lanthanum in it.

It's not like it's an Aero-Ektar or something; short of smashing and eating the thoriated glass, I don't think it could possibly harm anyone.
I used the SMC Tak set for all my video work before I could afford a Sigma, such beautiful lenses. I regret selling my adapter because now I want to try out some Helios / Zeiss glass.
Jupiter-9 on ebay sometimes sells for <100
My chinon 50 1.4 was only $15, chinon a shit too.

Best legacy 50 I've come across are nikkor 1.4, or if you want warmer and more contrast, the canon fd version. No point limiting yourself to m42 when nikon f90x go for $30, which was the d810 of the last of the 135 cameras.
Helios 44-2 or 44-4
Also Jupiter 9 and Jupiter 3 (but you got to be lucky)

Jupiter 21M
It's sharper than my father's old Tokina auto-tele 200mm f/3.5 FD
But anyway, I should get a speedbooster because MFT just crops a little too much for these lenses and they become comparatively unsharp.
Probably will get an FD speedbooster and then use an M42-FD adapter.

>Jupiter 21M
It is just a copy of the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f3.5
the Jupiter 21M is a 200mm 4.0 tho
You're thinking of the jupiter-37a
My mir 1b sucks dick, shitty resolution on every f-stop. Probably just caught the bad copy.
S Takumar 55 1.8 and 135 3.5
Got not long ago a Zeiss Triotar 135/4 for around 25€ including shipment on ebay.
