Here's an interesting item:
The old photo lenses have simply optical schemes and primitive multicoating or without MC.
The technology of production of a old photo lenses was simply too, but, paradox - this is lenses can make great images.
This is pictures have a some art " salt".
We tired from high sharpness and high contrast pictures and wish soft and low contrast " romantic " style.
As of my opinion and experience, the very interested lenses from old medium format photo cameras, like 9x12, 6x9, 6x6 sm.
I test many old lenses with photo cameras and had great results.
The special art style of image can show you wide possibility at creation.
Old medium format and 35 mm SLR photo lenses lenses have long FFD and can be attach to DSCL cameras.
I confirm of a idea to find of a new art tools for realization a new creative ideas.
I can draw attention on " monocle " ( single glass optical system ) type of lenses too.

Do not need chase on collection lenses.
There already is ...
I bought a 1870's Voightlander Petzval for about $1500 two years ago - similar examples are selling for $3000+ today
This is lenses have super high value, because, this is antique lenses.
From optical side, the similar picture result will show you a lenses with less price $10..$50....
