| p.5 #3 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase? |
I don't want to hijack the original intent of the thread but...
I shoot Canon crop frame right now with a (remote) possibility of going FF in the next year or so. I'd like to explore 24-50mm somewhere in the f/1.2 - f/2.0 range. Are all of the lenses you mention adaptable to EOS? I picked up a Fotodiox FD-EOS adapter because I've seen some good local deals on FD glass. Should I be concentrating on modified glass (ala the Jim Buchanan conversions)?
As for $$, I have no oil well in my backyard so budget is always a consideration.

In that range, I'd focus on the Oly 24/2, 28/2, Nikon 28/2, CV 40/2 and helimat's 35/1.8 (Which seems to be and good option and coincidentally he's selling right now...shameless plug for a good guy ) There's a lot of info here so do a search.
The FD adapter isn't a a great idea IMO. You won't get infinity focus without optics in the adapter and the adapter optics are generally crap. The alternative is to have the lens converted, the difficulty and cost of which vary depending on the lens. There's a reason why they are cheap.
