(OK, now somebody advise 'im to buy $2000 worth of lenses . . . )
My average AF lens cost was over US$300. My average MF lens cost was US$15. Let's see, for US$2000 that would be about 6 AF lenses or about 130+ MF lenses. That's a good start. Start with everything branded Takumar, Sears, Focal, Meyer|Pentacon, Toyo|TOU, Vivitar, aand Jupiter. Proceed from there. Have fun!

To OP,
You need a calibrated focus screen to use with many many cheap-and-very-good manual focus lenses out there.
Some good lenses can get for a coffee, some cost more, some far out of my reach, but there are so many to pick.
