I'm picking up the Brevis35 system next week and I have a couple of questions for the lens experts. I have a choice of lens mounts but am indecisive on what I should be looking for. I can choose from Pentax K, Nikon AI, Canon FD or EF/EOS, Minolta MD and the Oct19 and PL. I'm looking to get a few lenses and don't want to break the bank. So I'm looking for an even ground on cost and quality along with a wide range of choices.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I would recommend the Nikon AI for good cheaper glass. I like the Nikons out of personal preferences (and that I own a nikon camera). Also, i recall picking up an "e" series used from Bh 50MM F1.8 which was great. They also have f1.2 lenses out now, which can be a couple hundred.
