you men the 85mm Varisoft..it is the only one I know of.... BTW I'm selling mine

I've both the MD Rokkor 85mm and the A-mount AF Maxxum 100mm. The old MD Rokkor 85 is harder to use due to the adapter conundrum.



I think it might actually be harder to track down the AF 100mm than it is the old MD Rokkor 85mm in the used market.
