Currently own a FD 50mm/1.8 which is ok but I wonder what lens is a really must have for manual focus. Thinking about something around a 28 mm or a 50 mm with amazing sharpness. I have read somethijg about a rokkor 50 which should be great.


The lenses I enjoy the most are:

FD SSC: 24/2.8, 50/1.4, 85/1.4

Rokkor MC: 28/2.5, 58/1.2, 85/1.7

OM: 21/3.5, 24/2.8, 50/1.4

Super Multi Coated Takumar(m42): 28/3.5,  50/1.4, 55/1.8, 85/1.9, 105/2.8

Olympus Pen F 38/1.8

old rangefinder lenses(Canon 35/2.8 & 50/1.8)(Jupiter 3, 8, 9)
