I’ve collected various posts that discuss specific lenses in any kind of detail. It’s sorted in alphabetical order by brand and then by focal length…though there’s not much there. It’ll get filled out a bit more over time.
Current gear set up:
I had been shooting with an Olympus E-M5 for travel, hiking, and backpacking and a Canon 5D Classic for a variety of other (mostly manual focus) shooting activities. Now with the advent of the Sony A7, it’s been possible to replace my 5D and bring either the Olympus or the Sony on larger trips. The A7 has also opened up more opportunities for using unique lenses on the format that they were designed for. So the 5D is gone and the A7 is in its place.

Right now I have too many lenses, but I’m still trying to find a balance. So in time this will change…as it always does. Trying ‘new’ old lenses is invariably a lot of fun. Some lenses I’ve posted about in the past, for example, have been sold & replaced.
Of course, I also continue to shoot film with an OM-10 and two large format cameras (a Graflex Speed Graphic and Eastman View Camera No. 33A from around 1935.
