Manual Focus Lenses I Like


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/FP120002_r.JPG

For those of us that like using manual focus lenses, I'm sure that we all have our favourites that we always grab on the way out the door. I have a few so I thought I would mention them here. maybe I can get a few tips an what you like, and maybe, just maybe, you can recommend one that I haven't tried and turns out to be a gem.

Samyang
I believe this manufacturer to be ...

New Lens Expectations


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/samyang_r.JPG

 

 

I've been so impressed with the Samyang lenses that I started thinking about them in general. Although they are all manual focus lenses, once you get used to them you really don't miss autofocus at all. Well, that's me speaking of course. Horses for courses and all that.

I now have the 12 f2 for MFT and for Fuji X mount.

Update: 135mm Lens - Samyang 135mm f2 for E Mount


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD230010.JPG

 

 

One of my first post was about using 135mm legacy lenses on mirrorless systems. Since then I've acquired another 135mm lens but not one that can be adapted to all systems. The original post was about legacy lenses easily adapted to modern digital mirrorless systems via a cheap dumb adapter.

This new lens has an FE Sony mount as the Sony native lens selection is rather lacking. I have some A mount lenses but ...

Samyang 100 f2.8 Macro for FE-Mount


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/DSC_2555f.jpg

After the purchase of the Samyang 135mm f2 lens, and being very impressed by the image quality I decided to acquire the Samyang 100mm f2.8 Macro also in the E-mount version (I know I've said it before but I'll say it again anyway, there's no way I'm going to pay Sony the prices they're asking for their newer lenses). I did look at the Zeiss equivalent but I had to pick myself up off the ...

My X-Mount Lens Solution (Partly Solved)


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/Fuji_price_hike.JPG

My last post was just me philosophising a little about what X-Mount lenses to buy or not. I still haven’t acquired the Fujinon 10-24 f4 because it’s just too expensive. Can’t justify it, and if I personally say that about a lens then it’s got to be serious. It doesn't mean that I've given up on that lens though, it's just on hold.

 

I decided to go another route with my X-Mount lenses with ...
