Hey everyone, I'd like to do a top 4 vintage lens list. There have been discussion about people using old glass from like the 60's and 70's but not collectively narrowing down a top lens for use with DSLR cameras..

My favorite for DSLR and 35mm adapters is 1960s Zeiss medium format primes.

I've been using a Nikkor AI 35mm f/1.4 lens on my T2i with stunning (IMO) results. I was shooting today with a Nikkor AI 85mm f/2 and am similarly pleased.
