    I'm surprised that no mention has yet been made of the Nikon 28mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor. For me, it's a tossup between this lens and the oft mentioned S-M-C Takumar 50/1.4

    Another vote for the Cosina-Voigtländer 21mm Color-Skopar. Mine is currently mounted on my Bessa-T.

    It all depends on which week you are talking about! This week it is my Canon 50mm 1.2L, next week who knows? Back to the SMC Takumar 1.4, this truly is a great low light lens and so cheap too. I have two and they both have gone a yellow colour as noted somewhere else in this thread.

    This is no problem as I use them for B&W mostly, but I was wondering what causes this as it seems to be a common problem.

    Radioactive lens elements ? These can yellow over time, as per early Zuiko 55mmf/1.2 (?)

    I am echoing the choice of the Takumar 55 f1.8 and F2. I have versions from the semi auto for my Asahi Pentax Model K all the way to a SMC Takuamar for my Spotmatic F. Pop a yellow or orange filter and magic happens.

    Best: SMC Pentax f:1.4. Second best: DR Summicron. Most usable: Canon 28-105.

    My favorite, generally speaking, is a fast fifty. I rank mine in this order: f2 Summicron, f1.4 Nikkor, f2 Jupiter 8, f2.8 Tessar. They are all quite good. I like the Summicron's OOF backgrounds better. The Jupiter 8 is a stunning perfomer for the small price paid.

    Peter should I keep them in a separate lead-lined room?
