Re: Need advice on good vintage 50mm and 75-85mm lens

There are lots of Nikon Nikkors around...as well as lots of information.  From what I can tell there is general feeling that any of the major brand 50mm's are good quality in the manual focus era.  My strategy was to pick a single brand for 2 reasons:  So I could get to know it's lineage so I could look for good deals on my own......if you have to rely on others saying what to look for then you can't act as fast.  Second, only having to have one type of adapter.

I love the feel and build quality of the old lenses.  They don't make them like they used to.

When I am looking on ebay and craigs etc I refer to this Nikkor bible site. I assume there are similar out there for Canon etc.
