I'm not quite sure how old this one is -- ah wait, this tells me that 25,790 were made from June 1956 to Feb 1958.

Somehow it doesn't seem fair to burden it with the Vivitar 70-210 or Rubinar 1000/10.
But a Meyer 50/1.8 suits it well, or the Industar-50 in this pic.
Wikipedia says the first M42 mount dates from 1949.

I just wanted to thank you all for the advice/friendly replies in this topic... I haven't had time to visit the forums since my first post (but I did continue with my purchase thanks to the advice given here, ie it was very helpful to me)--
I ended up buying a set of Super Takumars which have been very nice to my eyes (treating me with good visuals)... See you in the sky!
