I'm trying to get better at manual shooting. Primarily because I seem to get more enjoyment out of it than thinking I can do better than the camera (unlikely) at focusing or exposure. To that end, I'm considering getting a manual lens to see if I'd enjoy it. I'm probably going to start with something like the 7Artisans 25mm 1.8 just because it's sooo cheap. I know you get what you pay for but it's a very inexpensive way to try out manual shooting. Image quality is a secondary (or lower) consideration at this point. What I'm wondering about is, if I end up liking manual lenses and I want something nicer, do I go with something like a native M43 Mitakon or an adapted Olympus OM lens (or other adapted lens). Looking at it from a price perspective, there really doesn't seem to be a huge difference in what I'd pay for a Mitakon versus an OM in good shape plus adapter. I doubt I'd ever get to the point where a Voightlander or equivalent would make sense from a financial versus use perspective. Obviously there are focal length considerations (what I'd get from native versus adaped) but what else should I be thinking about?
