Yes... yes... that's right... rid yourself of those old dirty lenses. Set yourself free.. purge.. Purge, you will feel so much better for the consumption of the fresh and new after all. And besides, you deserve it. You all deserve it. You have worked hard. life is to short to waste your time with junk your fathers would have turned their noses at. And they were right too, modern technology is just so much more advanced. There is nothing stopping the progress and the advances made. Do you really want to limit your creativity by using old tech?

I have to chuckle a little. People forget that the bulk of the work in optical design happened well over 50 years ago
I agree, with some Carl Zeiss,Voigtlander and schnieider lenses I can trace back their lens designs back as far as the 1880's - though in the past two decades there are some real oddities - like the FA31, I haven't seen a lens design like that before. The FA43 is based on a modified tessar lens design - and Tessars have been around since 1902.
