    That's an odd assortment of close focal lengths.

    A few years ago when I realised I couldn't afford the Nikkor prime lenses I wanted, I bought a Minolta XE-1 (XE-7) and three lenses. 50mm f1.4 Rokkor PG, 28mm f3.5 Rokkor SG and 135mm f3.5 Rokkor X. I cannot fault any of these lenses and they cost between a third and a quarter of the comparable Nikkors.

    The 50mm MC Rokkor-X PG 1:1.4 is my personal favorite, but they're all good lenses - you'll like the 1:1.7.

    I have a 50mm MD f/1.7 that is very sharp. My favorite street lens is an MC 35mm f/1.8. Not quite 'normal' but close enough. Very sharp and great contrast even wide open.

    I think that the PF models were their better ones...

    i started with the 50/1.4 MD,...

    then picked up an old school auto-rokkor pf 58/1.4, which i'm enjoying as it was dirt cheap.

    but from all the samples of rokkor lenses i've seen on flickr, the 1.2's seem to jump out at me the most,....

    so now i'm after a 58/1.2, which is pricey compared to other rokkor lenses,... but is dirt cheap compared to the 1.2's of other brands.
