How good are the old lenses on digital?

I mean the AI-s vintage ones. I'm really enjoying this thread - I had a Nikkormat in the 70s, then FM and FM2, and a bagful of prime lenses. When I bit the bullet and went digital a few years ago I went with Sony (DSC R1, an absolutely stupendous glorified P&S with a Zeiss lens. Love it) and then a full-frame body, and I foolishly got rid of all my Nikon gear.

Now I seem to having a mid-life crisis. I'm looking at the D600 and thinking how great it would be to go back to basics and use it like I used to use my FM2 with old manual-focus primes, like the 50 f1.2 which I always coveted but could never afford. How stupid is this pipedream? Would I be disappointed?
