Welcome to the forum, if A series primes count as "retro", then me too.

Yes, it' stun to take out those old lenses and basically be in pure manual mode, but then see the results instantly rather than waiting for the film to develop. That's one of the reasons I bought a Pentax DSLR. So I could use all my 70's/80's lenses. Just need the adaptor to convert the screw on mount.
