btw they seem to be going up in value as digi users buy them to get cheaper wide aperture.
I found Takumar 1.8/55 for 104.99 USD, Carl Zeiss Tessar 50mm/2.8 for 52.59 USD and ORESTON 1,8/50 mm for 29.4 USD. There's a huge difference between the price of Takumar and other lenses, I'm considering Takumar though. Tomorrow the photo swap meet in a music club should start, but in Poland there's a national mourning and the club will stay closed. I'll check the prices there next week. Thank you for your time
