I picked up a Pentax 50mm f2.8 macro for the equivalent of $20, and a Takumar 50mm F1.4 for the equivalent of $10. Having huge fun with these and other manual focus lenses, I am focussing (sorry) on Pentax and Takumar. Especially for macro, manual focussing is great. It's a lot easier if you grew up with film. Some pics:
