    Just picked up a couple of lenses, wondering which are worth keeping.

    So currently, I have or have ordered...

    - (2) Fujinon 1.8 55mm
    - Fujinon 1.4 50mm
    - Mamiya/Sekor 1.2 50mm
    - Chinon 1.7 50mm

    I'm wonder what I should keep and what I shouldn't worry with.

    I'm also looking out for a 35mm (eyeing a MIR-24, a few Nikkors) and a 85mm. Any thoughts?

    I had a couple MIR-24's which were great lenses. The only problem is that they were much warmer in tone than my Canon's and Nikons which made it a bit harder to match. However all of my Russian glass was warm, so as long as I kept it communist it all matched well.

    Just grabbed this one, as well. My question is if it's a K mount or M42.

    Also, with a follow focus or similar, how the hell will I adjust it with that odd textured focus ring?

    K, definetly not M42 given that its a bayonet and M42 is a thread.

    Thanks for that. Guess I'll have to buy another adapter. Good thing they're cheap, I guess.

    I see a lot of people storing vintage lenses in little containers, like tupperware, rather than trying to track down fitting lense caps. What do you guys use?

    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.

    Some people choose to store their lenses this way, allowing UV light to constantly enter the lenses, in an effort to stop fungal growth.

    I see a lot of lenses like this.



    No lens caps included, but in essentially a little tupperware container.

    Is there any down side? It seems that finding fitting lens caps for a lot of these vintage lenses isn't easy.

    Speaking of fungal growth, how do you help prevent it after purchasing and keeping these older lenses?
