My LBA is running wild. Just found & bought M35/2.8. What a rush. I've been waiting for it some time. Now all I need is M150 to reach my target. Not sure what happens after that.
I see a whole bunch of "suggestions" above, but I won't add to them. I'm sure you will find something else to feed your LBA.

If I were him, I'd do the K club... A lenses are too plasticky for my taste...
Probably rather K than A, if I keep in vintage. There are some models that have cought my eye. Almost bought my first K couple of days ago when I found a way underpriced K135/2.5 when someone was selling a film camera and 3 lenses, but someone was faster than me.

More testing of my 200mm f4... f8 appears to be the sweet spot so far.

I'd forgotten how satisfying it is to use a fully manual lens for some things. It's a great little lens.

Yes, the best sharpness is at f8, but it's also quite fun to shoot wide open the get the best bokeh.

It's not my best M lens... in fact I think it's actually the worse... don't know if it's my copy or if it's supposed to be like that... it's comparable to my 80-200/4.5 at 200mm.

I like my 80-200mm at 200mm - not bad for a zoom at all

you should - that was from a batch I took recently at my first attempt at shooting fast cars in motion - it is more difficult than it appears to be, but fun.
