I'd like to thank all who have contributed to this thread as well as those who started and maintained its early days, without this thread, I may have never discovered the joys of vintage glass.
I bought a 55 3.5 micro and 105 2.5p and have been absolutely delighted with their performance, and both have created as much excitement/engagement as the purchase of any modern glass.

DSC_8742-7 by Diallo Jamal, on Flickr I noticed the 55mm has significant veiling flare when shooting into the sun, so I tried to use that to create a bit of a dreamy look in this shot
DSC_8525 by Diallo Jamal, on Flickr First day with the lenses, couldn't wait until I finished work to mount and shoot with them. Very pleased with the sharpness and bokeh of the 105
DSC_9366-1 by Diallo Jamal, on Flickra coworker asked me to take a few pics of her new engagement ring, thankfully I had the 55 3.5 at the ready. The focus wasn't perfect, but I am pleased for quick and dirty shots taken while I had code running (I have cleaned my sensor since these were taken)

I've thoroughly enjoyed the lenses which I purchased for a song, and look forward to further exploration of Nikon's manual glass.
