Re: 'Legendary' status

Fun thread, interesting lenses mentioned so far, and it's always nice (and dangerous ) to hear about lenses I hadn't looked at yet.

I'd include the

Nikkor 75-150mm f/3.5 Series E

to what has been mentioned yet - legendary not for it's price or IQ, but because Galen Rowell allegedly used it to shoot his famous Rainbow over Potala Palace photo (I've read that somewhere but can't find the reference, that's why I say "allegedly").

I personally like it because it is small and light while offering decent IQ, making it a perfect travel telephoto lens when one wants to travel light. Plus it's very affordable, a real winner for me. Only downside is its serious zoom creep, so I mainly use it at either 75mm or 150mm, but that's ok.
