^How do you find the 50/1.4 Zeiss compares? I might end up picking up the 50/1.7, I have the Yashica 50/1.7 DS-M and ever since I got it I've been obsessed with it.
I came across this lot in a thrift store last week and thought I had hit the jackpot... (sorry, pic was taken with an EF lens, but it's of vintage lenses)

Turned out all the lenses were either not easily converted mounts "Minolta" or just no-name knock off's that were way over priced
Then today I went and hopped around some flea markets for most of the day and go figure the very last place I went into had an old camera bag sitting there... when I asked the clerk to look at it he told me they had a whole bunch of lenses and camera "junk" behind the desk and he let me dig through it
I walked out with a cheap Vivitar SLR with a Vivitar M42 50/1.9 MC lens on it, a Vivitar 200/3.5 M42, a PK mount Sears 135/2.8, a cheap tele-converter and my favorite, a Yashica ML 28/2.8 (the later version) all for $50!
I'm ordering mounts tonight. I also have a Helios 44m-4 that I jumped on since it was only a couple of states away. I ordered it the other day not knowing obviously that I'd be finding all this stuff. Needless to say, I'm excited to try them all out!
