Re: Good OLD lenses to have in bag

I'm not sure if you're attached to your zooms, but there's definitely some better photo quality in prime lenses. I'm not a huge fan of them, and you seem to have 2 zooms that overlap quite a bit.

With a trade, you could get a couple of nice D prime lenses, or even manual focus lenses (which are cheaper). I'd also recommend trying the 50mm 1.4D over the 1.8D. It's sharper and faster. You would be surprised! Lots of people like the 85mm 1.8D (was a little too soft for me). I see the manual focus versions of 105mm and the 135mm on craigslist and ebay once in awhile for good prices too.
