|FD lenses are large and heavy, like the Nikkors.
OM lenses are small and the common ones like the 1.8/50, 3.5/28 and 3.5/135 are very cheap.
You won't find lenses better than your Minoltas without spending a lot of money. The W-Rokkor-SG 3.5/28 and Rokkor-PF 1.7/50 I have are as good as anything else in those focal lengths that I've tried and for the price they cost, there are no bigger bargains imho.
However, for the 85 and 135 focal lengths, you can't get better price vs performance than M39 Jupiter-9 2/85 and Jupiter-11 4/135, both are copies of the CZJ Sonnars of the same specs.
I don't care who designed it, who made it or what country it comes from - I just enjoy using it!
