    This could drive up the cost of your old 35mm manual focus lenses

    Maybe so. I still like manual focus lenses. BTW If you took a manual focus lense and focus on a car would that become auto focus?

    I don't get your point. You linked to a review of one certain lens. How could that crank up 35mm prices (wheter you refer to focal length or format)?

    I don't understand why they put up an opinion article from a guy that has only ever owned one lens. Not that you have to own them all in order to have an opinion, but why should I care about this guy's perspective on the subject?

    No risk, the main part of the di*it*l camera users don't give a bag of beans about MF lenses, and the few that does, probably already have a quite nice collection of gear.

    Wait a minute. Someone makes auto-focus lenses? Maybe I should start buying newer gear?

    It is amusing to note that the writer of the article has come to the startling conclusion what generations of 35mm photographers have known all along. I have considered the 35mm focal length to be my normal lens and actually have two of the f:2 Nikon variety of this focal length. It is also interesting that he does't even shoot film, only digital.
    I am not losing sleep over the possibility of prices rising in analog gear as I have more than I need at this time ;-).

    No, you'd have to focus from the car.

    No, don't waste the time and money. They'll never catch on.
