For a low price you could get 2 or 3 of the famous legacy lenses. Are you interested in learning to hone your skills with manual focusing, and having fun doing so?

I'd suggest:

- definitely one of the 'fast 50's' from Canon, Minolta or Olympus . etc.

- A good 28.

-A compact rugged 135mm like the Minolta MD f2.8 or f3.5

These should cost you no more than $100 each. If you set out to make all your purchases from the same brand, you should only need to purchase one adapter.

Thank you so much for this post! A Minolta MD f2.8 135mm is now on my list of lenses to purchase. Would have never known to look for it if not for your infomation.

Great! If you can, please also consider the 135/MD f3.5 for it's much smaller size and neat built in lens hood.
