Several years ago I started collecting and shooting vintage lenses. And I have to say, that aside from the MF side of things, its been one of the most fulfilling things I've ever embarked in. Who knows... maybe you'll find a way to satisfy your needs also.

that is a good idea and i have seen a lot of old MF m42 and k mount lenses at the thrift shop's lately. I think i will take advantage of the older MF lens. the hole thing of this thread is that i really want to get a newer fast lens for indoor shooting and the prices are out there for something like a 28-75mm f2.8 and then i looked at the FA 50mm 1.4 and they want at the least 250 used and i just dont have that kinda money to spend on a lens.

i dont know i might just look for one of the 85mm f1.4 MF lens with the a pin i think that might be my est bet
