I agree, I use the old f2 on my 105 all the time.
She just thought that was the only way to photograph.
She couldn't understand why I stopped the Hasselblad down to F8 in the studio, and thought that f2.8 plannar was worthless.
Back in the 90s, 50 1.8s and 50 1.4s were the kit lenses. They were on the camera because they were cheap
Now everyone fawns over them like its the second coming of Jesus
I used a 50 1.4 wide open for my Junior High photos of all my friends because it was too dark in the cafeteria and classrooms for anything slower
I wish I could have closed down for some of the group shots
