I just picked up a Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-S which would be considered Alternative on my 5DmkII

I took delivery of a Nikon Series E 50mm 1.8 yesterday. With the Metabones Speed Booster and my NEX-6, I've now got a nice sharp 50mm with a full frame look in a very small package. I'm very satisfied with the whole package, since I've really missed the full frame look after selling my 5D2 last year.

That would be a Tokina 28-70/2.6-2.8 AT-X Pro II. Bought it about 6 months ago & sold it a few months back but it was excellent glass. Wish I'd kept it longer.

Yes.A great lens.Angenieux zoom emulation.I used to have 3 copies in the film times.It should work well on digital.

It is snowing outside and everything around is white.Looking through the window I think it's Christmas,not Easter.Hunting for new lenses I've just acquired Hexanon 50/1.4 EE to complement my Konica lineup.This lens is very well regarded.

Vivitar 70-150/3.8 macro (1 touch) for Nikon. Lovely little lens that came with the 2x converter as well.

Minolta 35-70 3.5 macro. No idea if true but I read this is one of the Minolta lenses that was made at the time Minolta were working with Leica and is supposed to have a performance that supports the claim. It should be possible to remove a tab under the mount ring to keep the aperture open fully at wider settings. It stops down a lot @35mm to maintain 3.5 so if nothing else it may be easier to focus.

Canon 50mm Macro FD 3.5
This image taken at F16 on a Nex 5N. The corner sharpness is amazing on this inexpensive lens.

Tokina 17/3.5 from another FMer. Though so far I didn't really have the time to do a proper evaluation, it looks really good.

It is true.The purest Minolta/Leica is the one without macro function,but having both I prefer macro version - lighter,close focusing and a tad better colours/contrast.

Are there any CZ 100-300/CY available in the universe without zoom play?

Do you mean what I call "zoom creep", where the lens self-extends while pointing down?

Or do you mean "breathing", where the focal length reduces as you focus closer?

Or where the outside tube of the lens wiggles around a little bit, over the internal tube/focus helical?

I wish I could get my lenses to breed. I've tried to set the mood for the APO-Elmarit-R 100 and Summilux-M 50, soft lighting, Barry White on the stereo, time alone, but so far this has not yielded the APO-Summicron 75 for which I'd hoped.
