Yeah, my few auto-focus lenses -- even from the 90s -- are very plastic and cheap-feeling. Near-impossible to use manual-focus.
I very much prefer my solid-feeling lenses prior to those.

What a lot of today's practitioners don't realize is that increased mass increases inertia which improves stability by reducing shake.
The 28-210 zoom I've used since the '80s is 778g and a joy to use.

I also didn't buy a DSLR until 2016 -- when Pentax (Ricoh) released the K-1 (full-frame, dontcha know).
Once I bought the K-1, I began buying more vintage lenses, mostly Super-Takumars which are as old as I am.
