For the ultimate 50mm lens.
How many “nifties” (the affectionate nickname for fifty mm primes) have I collected recently ? More than my share. I’ve bought, tried and resold a few, bought new ones, and intend to keep on doing that a bit more.
I’ve had the tiny OM 1.8, which small size is defeated by its big adapter. I have te huge FL 55/1.2, which is too big for comfort, but too crazy good to let go. I had the supposedly super sharp Hexanon 50/1.7, except mine was awfully soft. I have a Minolta MD 1.7 which is wonderful… until I found out it has a bit of fungus growing inside, <sigh>
