    Bald? Maybe, if the third-party lens is completely worn out and of no practical use.

    I agree that in general, Nikkors are better but there are some specific third-party lenses that are not crazy to use at all.

    Maybe by "bald" you meant "racing slicks"... and in that case, most of the time that would be bad but on a bare, dry road that would be amazing!

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
