Re: Best "old" inexpensive Lenses?

not sure how old is 'old' for you. i have 2 rokkors from the 60s i think. the 58 f1.4 gives brilliant bokeh & colors. the rokkor 135 f2.8 i can't get a decent shot handhels. it is ok if not handheld and in open daylight.

my sigma zoom 80-200 gives dark pictures even wide open.

my canon fd 50 f1.4 is another great lens with great bokeh. colors are so so. i just can't shoot in sunlight outdoors at f1.4 because speed is limited to 1/4000 which still gives too bright an image sometimes.

my tokina rmc 28 f2.8 is also great although i have not yet really tested it. maybe this weekend.

my other lens are relatively new.
