Yes they are, many are modified for DSLR and are exceptionally good.

Off topic.
In the past 15-20 years the prices have risen greatly.

In 2011 I bought this 1960's 75mm lens for $370,

Being dumb I sold it for $400 about a year later. It was one of the best lens I've ever had so I had no real reason for selling it.
I was on a hunt for similar one for years, I was willing to pay over 1K for one and luckily I found one for only $700.

One of the few things I own that I will never sell.
