Trying to decide on FD Lenses
I recently acquired an A-1 kit which came with lots of stuff overall. I'm only keeping some of it and the rest will be sold. What I'm trying to decide though, is what to keep, what to sell, and what (if anything) to buy.
Here's what I have right now:
2x A-1 bodies (one is getting sold to a friend for sure)
Winder A2 (I actually like the way the Winder A looks better and I don't need the motor drive)
2x 50mm f/1.8 (one's going with the camera being sold)
60-120mm f/2.8 (Tokina)
I was planning on selling both zooms and the 50mm and buying a 50mm f/1.4 and calling it a day with the 28/50/100 kit.
I've heard good things about the 35-105 and I do like it, it's built really well, but it's pretty large and I'm just not sure if it's worth keeping for me.
However, as a side note. I am also a Digital Micro 4/3 user and all of these lenses can be easily adapted onto my camera which would be fun as well.
I'd love to hear some opinions from you guys, I know the L lenses are the ones to get, but I spend my money on the EF L lenses for my DSLRs, I just want decent lenses for the times I still want to shoot film.
I got 50mm f1.4 from eBay for cheap
I love that lens. Nice Bokeh wide open. I wanted one 25 years ago, but can't afford it because it cost hundreds of dollars. But now it's a different story.
