I am looking for suggestions on which Ai or Ai-s Nikon lenses can stand up admirably on the new the full frame bodies, let’s just stick with the 24 megapixel versions.

I know the new Z lenses are in a league of their own but I am wondering if there are some of these Manual focus, cheaper lenses that can at least not embarrass themselves

I guess I would mostly be interested in wide angle but really anything up to maybe 105 mm or 135 mm.

Thanks!

With Ai and AIs lenses you basically need to re learn how to set exposures in your camera, Matrix metering no longer functions, you find unless you set exposure for the parts of the image that are most important, you will find a lot of over or underexposed images. this certainly slows down the taking of images,
