Interested in what everyone has been buying lately.
For me it is the vivitar series one 200mm/3.5 AF
I havent had a chance to shoot it yet since I will need to do a mount swap to get it on my sony... its looking like the AF is nonfunctional unfortunately, although Im not that concerned

Mamiya RZ67 140mm f/4.5 Macro M-L/A for $60(!!!), with non-functional floating element. $20 worth of parts later from M.A.C., and it's good as new! (And worth about $400-450 now... ;-)

Fujinon 400T/8 with EBC coating in Copal 1 for 4X5. Perhaps the most expensive lens I own.

Two 4X5 shots stitched and then cropped to 6X18 (true 6cmX18cm).

I just got in a Contax Sonnar 100/3.5 .
I love my Planar 100/2, but it's quite a hefty chunk of glass; I'm hoping the sonnar will get me something close in a lighter, smaller walkaround lens for outdoor/daylight use. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet, but it's looking great so far. Of course, the planar is still far superior at f/2-2.8 .

C/Y 28/2.8 & C/Y 50/1.4 ... unless you count the double pistol case I bought to store my M645 glass in as an 'alt' lens case.

Good addition! I have both, and they make a fine pair. The S100 was the C/Y budget buy, but doesn't play second fiddle to any lens.

My latest Alt acquisition was the Yashica 50/1.4 ML. After several months, it has yet to see "first light".

I guess my Nikkor 35/2.8 AI doesn't count, since I don't use Canon, but Nikon. Then it would be an Olympus OM-1 with 50/1.8.

[Edit: I have decided that the Nikkor 35/2.8 AI counts, even though I use it on a D3. If it is alt on a Canon, then it is alt on a Nikon!]

I just got a Canon FD 50/3.5 Macro and a 24/2.0 as somehow speciality lenses for my NEX - along with the lightweight lens kit in M-mount, I wanted a not too expensive macro lens and a 35mm equiv. for low light.

This is no silly camera. It's the famous Auto S2, one of my favorites.

Minolta 400mm f/5.6 APO. I am hoping to convert it to EOS mount. If anyone has any advice on that I would sure appreciate it.

Too bad, Mike. Maybe I'll get two of them and do a Marty Feldman routine.
