    Not sure exactly what you are referring to, but photographers used to carry lenses around with caps and in cases to prevent damage. One doesn't negate the need for the other, IMO.

    I'm on a mobile device, but that seems like mostly filters and adapters. Maybe one or two are actual primes, but it's hard to tell. Sorry!

    I'm under the impression that any F-mount lens will work fine on a T3i. I think what you were reading was referring to the full-frame mirror on the 5D, which might collide with lenses that have...

    But at 17mm F/3.5, you have to wonder if it would be marginally better than the kit lens at the same size and speed.

    Yeah, I've seen people complain about build quality on the E series primes- for those I stuck with Nikkor. But my 75-150mm E-series zoom is a solid piece.

    The thing with vintage glass is that you will hardly find 2 lenses in the exact same condition. Yes, sometimes you will find vintage lenses are bit softer than their more modern counterparts...

    True, but personally I've had a hard time finding decent pawn shops anywhere near me. The few that I've found don't have anything camera related, so my best options are for sale ads on craigslist and...

    Nice.

    I also agree this thread is awfully long, but it is a rather broad subject.

    Id suggest there be a vintage lens subsection, but I don't think there's THAT much to say... still, this should...

    +1 on the Vivitar- I've found myself not using my 28mm 2.0 Vivitar so often these days, because I have to stop it down to F/3+ to avoid excessive softness. I do own a 17-55mm Tamron that wide open at...

    I personally bought a vivitar F mount 28mm F/2.0, and have been pretty happy with it (especially for the price). I was spoiled by my Nikkor 50mm 1.4, however, and always avoided using the 28 unless I...

    I think the general understanding is that non-AI versus AI does not matter on our camera. It matters for older Nikon cameras that used holes in the lens to meter light before taking the shot or...

    Oh good grief, I'm becoming addicted too.
    I *JUST* took the vivitar 28mm f/2 on ebay, and I was offered a tokina 24-40mm f/2.8 for $50 from a local craigslist guy.
    GAH! I have a 28mm, a 50mm, the...

    Thanks for finding that.
    I had a feeling the E-series were alright, but I couldn't find enough info on it. Everyone is busy going gaga over the Nikkors.
    Meanwhile, I put in a "best offer" on ebay...

    Just to clarify- it makes no difference if it is AI vs non-AI, right?

    Also, anyone have any comments on the E-series glass? It sounds like the Nikkor name were reserved for higher-end lenses with...

    Trying to find a good deal on a 28mm prime for cheap.
    So far I'm looking at a Nikon 28 /2.8 "E Series" that go for around $50 on ebay, or a Nikkor that go for much more (100-200).
