Two oldies come back to Daddy

  1. I have always sort of regretted selling two of my very best Ai-S lenses.
    I guess that I did get over it, but the arrival of FX made me hunt for these again.
    The last couple of days have been very fruitful (good ole' eBay :eek: ) and both are on their way to me :smile:. Excellent copies of:

    - Ai-S 35mm f/1.4
    - Ai-S 50mm f/1.2

    Again, my motivation is my expectation of these in full frame - should be awesome (it better be!)

    Some free advice for those on the fence for these: get them while the getting is good. These lenses command a (relatively) hefty dollar already, but as FX becomes more common I expect them to increase in $$$ some more (remember, you heard it first here :biggrin:) .

    Happy ending :) 
    I try to convice myself that my AF 35 f/2 is as good as the f/1.4
    The AI 50mm f/1.2 has been with me since early 1990's - and will stay!
     
  3. I am on the prowl for the 50mm f1.2, missed a small window recently and regretted not buying it at the time. the search continues.

    good word Frits .....so, u pick up an FX yet?
     
  5. Nope, not yet. Dunno when either, but the day will come - and these two beauties will be there waiting for it :smile:.
     
  6. I was glad to get rid of all of my MF lenses two years ago, including the two that you just purchased.

    ya same here....the Ai-S 35mm f/1.4 will prolly be the one for me:cool: 
     
  8. I had both (and a number of other Ai-S lenses) and sold them over the last year or so. I am fine with that, except for these two - I miss them and expect good things with FX.
