questions on oldNikkor Ai lenses

I was browsing kijiji and found a great deal on some Nikkor Ai lenses. I've never used old lenses but have always been interested in them. I am fine with manual focusing and actually like an aperature ring.

The 3 lensesI i'm looking at are

24mm f2.8 Ai

50mm f/2 Ai

200mm f/4 Ai

I am curious if anyone has ever used these lenses and has any feedback on them?

When I go test these lenses, apart from the telltale signs (physical damage), does anyone have any simple tests to make sure these lenses are in good working conditions.

From reviews I've heard so many good things about these old lenses. Best bang for my buck these lenses seem to be a great option. What are your opinion old nikkor lenses, any lenses you absolutely love?

I'm shooting mostly FX with a nikon d610, (d7000 once in a while)
