Fast Primes :
35mm - FA35/2 and the FA31/1.8 ltd
50mm - FA50/1.4, or a Sigma 501/.4
85mm - FA77/1.8ltd or a Sigma 85/1.4

Macro :
100mm - DFA100/2.8 WR

MPE65 - Pentax QS-1+PK adapter+macro lens.
Manual focus (as is the MPE), but no need to turn the focus forever, easier magnification control since it works seamlessly from macro distances to infinity, lots of DOF.

Here are some examples :

Fast primes:
Zeiss ZE 35mm f2.0 Distagon?
Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM?
Zeiss ZE 85mm f1.4 Planar?

Macro:
Canon EF 100mm f2.8 Macro IS USM?
As regards the 50mm f1.4, if you do not urgently require the f1.4 max aperture, check out the FA43 f1.9 Limited.

Together with the FA31 and FA77, these three are actually a set of lenses nicknamed the "Three Princesses", renowned for their special and beautiful rendering character.

You can see image samples in the FA Limited Club thread in this forum. Also in the Post Your K-1 Images thread.

If you find that you do like the FA43's rendering, you may well be prepared to forego the f1.4 requirement.

Thanks a lot KDAFA.
Is there any Pro Product Photographer in this forum? It would be nice to know about lens in use (Full Frame) and image samples.

The QS1 is a mirrorless camera with a small sensor.
It's about 4.7x crop factor which is what gives it the magnification.

Whats needed will be to use the camera, plus the original Q mount to K mount adapter and any macro lens.
The original adapter gives a flash sync of 1/250 which is better to have in daytime macros.

I used the Pentax F100/2.8 for the shots posted.
