RioRico has the right idea.

I put together an M42 kit over the last 3 years (ok prices have gone up and things have gotten rarer) and am committed for a total of $1200.

What did I get. Most expensive is a brand new zenitar MC 16/2.8 fisheye, also my widest lens. What else is in the kit, which occupies a small aluminum clad padded tool case?(also in the cost)

24/2.5 Tamron
28/2.5 Vivitar
35/2 SMC tak
50/1.4 super tak 8 element version
50/4 SMC macro tak
55/1.8 SMC tak
58/2 Helios
85/1.9 super tak
105/2.8 Vernon edonar preset
135/2.8 tele lentar preset
135/3.5. SMCTak
200/3.5 takumars preset
200/4 SMC tak
Set of extension tubes, macro focusing 15-30mm helix
2 different 2 x TCs

I got a whole bag of fun and some real quality primes for the price of the zooms you are looking at and would be willing to put them against the zooms any time for IQ, forget about speed, I win by 1-2 stops across the entire range

As for price only the zenitar and 85mm cost more than $100
