I guess I'm finished with buying MF lenses... I dont know what else to buy Embarassed If you have any ideas.... although 85 is reserved for AF (my son is too fast for manual focusing Smile )
So this is my "complete" gear all in MINT condition Smile



but I have one more wish... I want to have 50/1.4 lens Smile

I've got an idea: replace the Exakta 2.8/24 with a Nikkor 2.8/24. Wink

Nice pieces, I think you will not stop ever, a new lens always a new challenge a new camera always a new love. Currently I fallen in love with Bessa cameras. Who knows what will be next..

Nice collection (and the pentacon gdr mount conversion was clever).

How about an AI-ed Nikkor-S.C 50mm f/1.4?

Or (if you like ex-USSR Nikon-mount stuff) how about an Arsat Yashma-4N 300mm f/2.8?

So, what as the desirable characteristics of the Arsat 50/1.4?

I agree the Yashma is expensive, ok its f/2.8 but a Nikkor with ED is close to that price ...

I just heard Yashma is quite unsharp at wide open, might be I am wrong.

I had Arsat 50 1.4 great lens, but I like any Nikkor 50mm f1.4 better.

Click here to see on Ebay BIN US $105.00 + US $15.00 P&P.

Although, one could get a (second-hand) Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 for that price.

Why don't you take a NON-AI Nikkor 50mm f1.4 ,many of them going around 50 USD , today one went for 24 USD. If you need AI lens an AI conversion is very easy and I expect 25 USD conversion cost not more in your country.

50$ ? I'm registered only on ebay.de and I can't find any below 100 Sad
I can convert it myself Wink
