Jupiter 9 in m39 SLR mount, silver. Love it to bits. Great rendering and colours.

Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 non-EX has been a real gem for me. Sharp, built like a tank, lovely bokeh and great zoom range. Only disadvantage is weight, but thats what you get when combining zoom to large aperture.

My Tamron (2008) 28-75 f/2.8, I've tried the new Tamron 24-70 and rented Canon's 24-70 mkII twice and still can't let the 28-75 go. It's just the cost of the other lens are just not worth it compared to a lens I picked-up for $260 used.

~99.9% of my lenses are out of production.
There are a lot of gems there:
- Meyer Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 - fantastic near unique bokeh
- Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 - super fast with nice glow wideopen
- Meostigmat 70mm f/1.4 - swirl and cateye bokeh
- Canon FD 300mm f/2.8 - small super tele phote lens
- Vivitar 90mm f/2.5 - good macro as mentioned be others
- Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 AIS - middle tele photo
and many, many others!

I thought my 28-70 f/2.8L was stellar. I however wanted more focal length range. So it is gone.:(

Canon 500f4L is my jewel. Bought it for $5800 new and will probably hang on to it for the rest of my life, it's that good :-). My other jewel is the 24-70f2.8L that produces superb buttery smooth bokeh better than and close focuses much closer than my other 24-70f2.8L, mkII.

Olympus Zuiko 21mm and 24mm. Simply outstanding results in a lens that easily fits into my jacket pocket. Marvels of technology from yesteryear.

I just got a sigma 14 2.8 ex lens. While the jury is still out and in have not had a real interior shoot with it, my initial impressions are that for $400 it is so far beyond the value of anything current it is not even funny. It vignettes a lot, which I do like most times so no bother, it is not sharp but not crappy lens soft, so totally fine in that department and corners appear to be good stopped down. Distortion control is great considering it is 14 and I really feel like I got 85% of the 14L for 20% of the money! but again I just got this so I don't know it well not have had it in situations that will make it shine or show glaring faults. So far, so good.

A bazillion m42 legacy glass could also qualify for this thread as an answer so I went with something that is recently out of production.


Everything is relative.
Gear: 6D, Unholy Trinity:twisted: (24Lii, sigma 50A, 135L), and for the other ends of the spectrum, sigmaEX 14mm2.8 and sigmaEX 100-300F4.

It must be awesome to have at least 1,000 lenses!:D


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

- Ditto on the Tokina ATX 17/3.5!

Did not use it much on my 20D and 7D (especially since getting the Sigma 10-20), but on my new 6D the lens really rocks :-)

- Canon EF 80-200/2.8 L
just got a new used one from an eBay seller in Japan after my old one had been stolen, together with the rest of my gear

- CZJ (Carl Zeiss Jena) 135/3.5 M42 mount.
Can finally use that lens now on the 6D because manual focussing is now possible.

Best regards,
Andy

Indeed, a pity there is no lens sample database tread to see or post pics of this lens :(

Oh, sorry, one "9" too much - have only 500-700 lenses at the moment, need to update my Excel list.
