IMHO there are no ugly legacy lenses. Through a process of natural selection, the ugly ones have been thrown away even at the flea market.

That doesn't mean that a bit of studying their pedigrees does help to make better choices.

well, there are plenty ugly legacy lenses still around, and many newbies buy them without studying their pedigrees. then they get bad results with them and start to share on the forums dislike for using manual lenses
