Bitten by the Legacy Lenses bug ...
10 months ago

Ok, I'm sold.. now that I'm using manual mode and focus all the time, I think it's about time to try some legacy lenses.

I've been reading some stuff here at dpreview and over the internet and I'm thinking about either the Minolta Rokkor MD 50mm f1.4 or the Canon FD 50mm f1.4.

Of course I might buy more lenses in the future, although I'm gonna stick with one 50mm for now. The f1.2 options are way more expensive then the f1.4 ones, and there's always the risk of buying a legacy lens involved.

From what I've read, the Rokkor receive much more love then the Canon. Am I missing something or should I go for the Minolta? Any other suggestions?

Can't wait to get my hands on a legacy lens and start exploring this whole new world ...
