Met a guy yesterday who had the an older Canon FD 50mm 1.4 on his GF2, he said it takes amazing photos and cost him only $90 including the lens mount. I'm very interested in getting one for my gf2, and love the idea of having a bit more manual control (I find it's too easy to skip using manual settings while I'm learning with such an easy camera that does auto well).

I would like a new lens for mostly street photography while travelling around Europe.

Does anyone have any retro lens recommendations for me?

Thanks,
Nick

That lens is good but I prefer the old Nikon 50mm f/1.4
