One other thing.  Is the charm using the vintage lens for a vintage look or is 
it the results that matter?  For example, the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 
100mm f/2.8
from the 50's or 60's now approaches 50-75% of the new version. 


They are not the same as the new guy has modern coatings and more contrast with 
similar bokeh. 

The swirl bokeh in the Helios 44-2 58mm F2 Russion lens is cheap but often oil 
on the blades and one of the 8 variants is best.  Getting that and CLA'd is 
still cheaper 
than the Petzval 55mm f/1.7 Mark II Bokeh Control Art Lens from Lomography but 
the latter can be used at other apertures than wide open and still have the 
characteristic bokeh and the swirl specifically controlled.  Also not sure want 
a Russian lens at the moment. 

Vintage all the way or similar look with new lens?  Mike
