    Leica Yet another new Voigtlander lens (28mm F1.5)

    Well done Bruce, I think this is the lens RF users have been waiting for given the prohibitive cost (and maybe size) of the Summilux and by all accounts it seems to perform at that level too. Yes the Thyooch looks interesting but the Voigt wins in size (which is a main part of my reason for...

    TIH 28 February

    These pictures from a week of so ago are of a platform that I only just realised was the scene of the Moorgate tube disaster. Today is the 49th anniversary of that. Never to be forgotten.

    Been away all day and on my way home and when I do get back they’ll be a Nikkor 35mm F2 Ai waiting for me which was delivered while I was out. Because Nikon made so many lenses, it means a lot of them can be had for cheap which was the case with this lens. Let’s hope it’s a good copy. I...

    Nikon And another new Voigtlander lens for Nikon Z users..

    To be fair, whilst I haven’t used the Nokton 75 F1.5 on a rangefinder, I understand it’s everything I could want and preferable in most ways to the much more bigger and expensive old Summilux of the same focal lengh, I was really just referring (without saying it) to how easy these lenses are to...

    Fuji Fuji X100VI coming Feb 20th

    There is some sort of argument regarding the OVF/ EVF along the lines of pick one not the other, but not both. Most people seem to go for the EVF over the OVF, I did that too with the first version X100 and I'm instinctively an OVF shooter. The only people I know who approve full time of the...

    Nikon And another new Voigtlander lens for Nikon Z users..

    I really do wonder sometimes whether the new lenses like this as well as the 50 F1 are better suited to Nikon Z rather than the rangefinder.

    A good friend of mine lives in Ashbourne in the Peak District, which I believe is not too far away from there, certainly similar conditions.

    Nikon Not much love for Nikon’s F mount or older DSLRs

    I like to think there's quite a bit of love here for Nikon DSLRs, no? Even where, like me, there are former owners who now own mirrorless offerings (and in my case it was purely down to adapting legacy lenses), they are still looked on by us extremely fondly. Off the top of my head can think...
