Not looking for Leica glass unless it is cheap (and most R-glass is Minolta anyway) I'm not paying 500-1000 dollars for something that doesn't have autofocus or image stabilization and doesn't natively work on my EOS system.
Actually, most R glass *isn't* Minolta (maybe 4 1970's vintage lenses were).

Anyway, the 90mm Summicron is very similar to the (newer) Nikkor 105 2.5, just does everything one stop sooner (f/2.0) and isn't that expensive.

The Leica 180mm Apo-Telyt can sometime be found at bargain prices and is compact and excellent.
The Nikkor AI(S) 200mm is also compact and very good.

Good ultrawides: Zeiss 18mm, Leica 19mm (second version), Vivitar/Tokina 17mm (sample variation permitting), Zeiss Jena 20mm, Mamiya 21mm.
