But then, my SIX legacy lenses cost a total only equalling a new Nikon 70-300VR + 35 1.8G!!!!!!!

Be patient. My over 125 legacy lenses cost an average of under $30 each, including shipping.

The catch is that it's taken me 3 years to get them, and there are still some I haven't gotten. Correlation between price and IQ is not strong; price correlates more with brand, mount, and "prestige" (e.g., f/1.2 lenses are expensive). I should also say that I've been getting these in support of computational photography research I'm doing at the University of Kentucky, so I'm not (quite) as addicted as 125+ lenses sounds.
