I recently acquired a nice copy of an SR-T 101 and am wondering what lenses I should be on the lookout for. I have the following already:

MC Rokkor PF 1:1.7 f=55mm
MC Rokkor PF 1:2.8 f=135mm
MD Celtic 1:3.5 f=135mm
Auto Caspeco 1:2.8 f=135mm
Seikanon 1:2.8 f=28mm
MD Zoom 1:3.5-4.5 f=35-105mm
Sigma XQ Zoom 1:4.5 f=70-230mm

I plan to sell/trade the Celtic and Caspeco 135's. I understand that the Celtic line are budget lenses and I've been told Rokkor X are the higher end ones, but I'm not 100% sure of that. I've shot one roll so far and am still waiting to see how they turn out.

The Celtic lenses are the "less expensive" line.

I like the MC Rokkor-PG 50/1.4. I made a rangefinder cam for it and use it on my Leica.

Hmm, now you're making me want to go out to the storage shed and find out just how many and what lenses I have left here from my SRT101. I've only got it's baby sister the SRT 100 here right now and it hasn't been out of storage for at least 10 years.
