Fuji + classic lenses

Anybody else love using classic lenses? I was creating a shopping list of Fuji lenses to buy and just got bored half way. The latest primes are too big and the samples all look the same. I threw away the list and took my X-T1 for a walk around instead.

My all time favourite has been the Nikkor SC 50/1.4 LTM. I used to mount it on my M8 and it would take my breath away (sample below). I was wondering if the lens will give me the same results on a X-T1. I couldn't find one of those extreme low light situations to make the lens sing. The high ISO capability made the shots smoother and lack the grittiness of the M8. Probably a good thing. Just different.

Please share your favourite classic lenses on a Fuji camera. I am looking for something interesting to experiment with.

X-T1 - Great for black and white work

X-T1 - Nice glow wide open

X-T1 - Easy going colours

X-T1 - Some renders are just amazing

X-T1 - Shots doesn't look too digital
