    Showing my cheapness here; I'm getting into video, and don't want to spend a ton on a variable ND. What are some good legacy lenses from 24mn-40mm, and 60mm-100mm?
    I've got my eye on the minolta 35-70mm f3.5; I've heard it's good, and I already have a minolta 50mm f1.4 and adapter. Under $75 would be preferable, as I haven't decided whether I really want to do video much. Thanks

    The f4 version is superior to the 3.5 in almost all ways (this was the same design as the leica).

    I didn't know there was an f4 version, thanks.

    I'm keeping my eye on this thread too.

    It's always good to know which piece of legacy glass can be adapted for digital use - been looking for a good video lens myself.

    Maybe I already have one in my possession! Fingers crossed for further recommendations. :thumbup:
