Legendary: Remarkable enough to be famous, very well known. Not revolutionary...

I dont have quite the high threshold as some on here but of these the few I’d agree with are the Hollywood 28/2, Voigt 180 APO (I’ll add the 125 APO), the Nikon 28/2.8 (borderline), 105/2.5 and 180/2.8 ED, Pentax 28/3.5 and 31FA, and Canon FD 35/2 but the thoriated BL. Don’t know about a few but I think either of the 50/1.4s are okay but can’t keep up anymore, they CY 85/2.8 is great but not legendary,

Well, Ming Thein's warm recommendation was already enough for me to make it 'Legendary', but I bought one and it is indeed totally exceptional.

Please don’t misunderstand, I own a MMG copy and love it! If we want to call it a legend I’m not going to argue about it.

I’l add the CY 21/2.8, 35/1.4, and 100/2. The Nikkor-O 35/2 and the Minolta 58mm f/1.2. Maybe the Takumar 50/1.4 8 elemen but the 7 element was pretty underwhelming. Probably the Contax G 45/2 as well
