Great old lenses

For portraits with my D7000 and other cameras I always use my vintage 85 f2 and 105 Nikkor MF lenses, got them for about $100 each used from Adorama. Precision glass and metal -- smooth as silk. You aren't going to get anything as good for less than five times that with the new stuff. Amazing resolution and sharpness, and MF is the only way to go for portraits as far as I'm concerned.
