| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Suggestions for a(n old) manual lens for a 6D? |
I'm considering toying around with a manual focus lens for landscape/outdoor photography. The last time I worked with a manual lens was many, many years ago, where it was a Soviet Rangefinder clone, and a Zenith (Industar)-based camera. Since then, I regressed into auto-focus.
Now that I got a 6D, I'm thinking of getting one or two lenses that would somehow magically look better than my 24-105L for some very specific tasks. Admittedly, I don't know what I'm looking for, but I'm thinking I should get my hands on a prime of some kind, maybe 35mm or so, to capture forests, temples, and that sort of wondrous stuff.
The catch: I don't want to spend a lot on it. I'm not splurging for a Zeiss, or anything of the sort. In fact, if I can find something for under $100, I will be ecstatic. I'm planning on trolling some used-camera stores in Japan in search of some lenses, so I'm setting myself up with some background knowledge before I do.
Is there anything I should consider, or am I out of my mind? I suspect I'd need some kind of a lens mount adapter (FD maybe? I guess it depends on what the suggestions will be). If I understand correctly, some of the FD mount adapters feature focus confirmation, which is probably a good thing?
