Among AI / AI-S lenses I'd suggest you what you already have

- 28 f/2

- 50 f/1.8 stepped nose (rare to find but with a slightly better rendition)

- 105 f/2.5 (see below)

- 180 f/2.8

Another lens you might find very good is the CV 40/2 ( I had it ) assumed you like that awkward focal length; conversely I've never been a fan of the 35/1.4. The only copy I could ever try during a fair was soft and had focus shift issues.

Something you could evaluate instead is the difference between ai and ai-s lenses. Some prefer the new lens coatings and the built in lens hood - actually I don't know how much they effectively influence the image, on the 105 2.5 I had both the AI and AI-S version and preferred the former because of a larger (more accurate) focusing gear

All the best from northern Italy, Dino.
