hmm.....I bought two adapters some time back for my old Carl Zeiss 50mm Practika lens, but never occured to me to put them on the 35mm, one to use as a reversing ring for macro, and one to attach it to my Nikon DSLR, to use as a 1.8 50mm prime. Never got round to using it much , and always assumed it's not in the same class as the Nikon of the same ilk, but now a bit more inspired to try it and see how it compares.

I love your comparison.
Yes, I love to use my 55 1.2 from 1976 it is the very best night lens Smile and produces some wonderful daytime bokeh
the other old one I love dearly is a 300 2.8 Tamron, I'd never sell it it has a bit of a diffuse touch if you want but it is also very sharp at the same time. hard to describe but you might find it in my flower images.

My fave lens is my old Canon EF 28-105mm, my first zoom lens when I bought my first SLR, the EOS5. It works equally well on digicams and it looks good and performs perfectly. I'd trade in all my other lenses before I got rid of this one.
