Thinking of sending off 3 lenses to John for conversion. Would like to use them on my D300, and some day a FX body...

(edit - all non-AI)

105mm 2.5 - beautiful lens almost like new. Supposed to be an amazing portrait lens and would like to give it a shot as one!

28mm 3.5 - Awesome condition like the above, but unsure if it's any better than my AF lenses? I don't have a 28mm prime, but Tokina 28-80 2.8.

50mm 1.4 - great condition as well. have a 1.4D already so more as a backup or lend-to-friend lens.

I got all 3 w/ an older Nikkormat camera for a song off local CL. In fantastic condition it seemed, so spending a bit of $ on the conversion isn't too hard to justify.

I'll snap a couple pics of them, and double check which 28mm i have, then post up here for you to look at. SN's etc.

(edit - adding pics):



Appreciate your suggestions and feedback on these lenses!
