I think my Rikenon-P 28mm f/2.8 would be handy. Its focal range is entirely covered in 1/4 turn, so you can cover 11 inches to infinity without spraining your wrist. Of course you could oversteer in that case.. it's always something isn't it? The DA 35/2.4 seems also to be 1/4 turn for the full range of focus. My Sears 50/1.4 takes 1/2 turn of the barrel to do as much. The one sad bit with Rikenon and other off brands is that they often don't have half-click aperture settings; for some people that's an important consideration.

FWIW, I used my Sears 50mm for this about a month ago. It was in a really dim Ruby Tuesdays and I didn't preplan the shot - my kid simply was acting cute so I flipped the camera over to video mode and fired away.

Looks great! That's exactly the kind of thing I'd want to capture. Those resturants are always so dim, and that looks surprisingly good. Thanks for posting!

All,

In doing some research (that led to decidedly less than productive research on youtube:-), I came across this interesting short, using the K-7, DA 10-17, DA* 16-50, DA* 60-250mm. Some pretty nice camera work there. It's pretty trippy and frenetic, but I love the color rendition, overall style, etc. The zoom at 2:14 is pretty effective. This has probably been posted before, but I really liked it

To the OP, I would suggest any of the M42 normal lenses that were originally sold with cameras from the 60s and 70s. Specifically:
  • Rikenon
  • Sears
  • Yashinon (Yashica)
  • Mamiya/Sekor
  • Chinon
You should be able to find Chinon in K-mount as well. At least there is a 50/1.9 which can be found cheap and I think a 50/1.7 as well.

Or even a 50/1.4 (mine was £30 off eBay with a A3 body attached)
