Vintage lenses?

Does anyone use vintage glass on their DSLR? If so, what would your suggestion for a 35mm prime be? A 50mm? Any other sizes? Quality manufacturers to search out? Some to avoid? How bad ARE the Helios lenses? Also, am I correct in my thinking that m42 would be the only way to go without degrading the quality of the lens through 3rd party optics in an adapter (such as in a Nikon f - MA mount)?
