I shoot only film, and sold my Leica R 90 2 Summicron. Now I need a budget priced manual focus lens for my Nikon SLR. The 105 2.5 is not to my liking, although a Nikon 85 2 is not too pricey and has delivered good results in the past, but you have to be careful what is in the background or you get a lot of little circular highlights. A lens need not be AI, pre AI, any of that as I can easily make any Nikon F mount work on my camera in AE mode. There aren't a lot of other lenses that will fit the Nikon cameras besides the Nikon lenses (my n8008s does not like the G lenses) or Leica R lenses w/ an adapter, so I'm looking for either third party lenses that are between 85 and 135 and have a Nikon mount, or lens filters that may improve a budget lens into a decent portrait taker. While thinking about this, I wondered whether a soft lens filter could be used to get good portraits with. My experience with soft filters is zero, so if someone can tell me if this is a possible route it would help a lot. Thanks.
