Lens for Sony NEX 5n on 10/24/2012 18:45:51 MDT Print View

Just ordered one with a Sigma 19mm.

What are some vintage lens that can accompany this kit? I looked at Ryan Jordan's review. The lens he recommends are over $1,000. Looking for some cheaper ones.

Just discovered the Fujian 35mm. 1.7. Any experience with it backpacking?

Those Fujian lenses are not designed for still photography, so you need to know how they work and use them with that in mind.
These are some nice shots from one of them :

On close ups it behaves a bit like having a center focus filter, sharp center and sudden out of focus corners, for longer distance it has an odd but possibly pleasing out of focus effect.
For the price I would think worth playing with one.
