Best cheap non-ai lens?
5 months ago

I'm looking to get some good old glass. What is the best non-ai lens that won't break the bank. I have a 50mm 1.4 already coming. Looking for a fast 35mm. How are the optics on the old f2.8?  I really like the metal barrels and larger rear elements in the older lenses. Any suggestions for both models, and reliable resellers is appreciated.
