I could be wrong but I'm don't think these reviews if implemented would be very active. However, the reviews page is due to a big update. How many lenses are we talking about here?
Hey Fred... good to hear from you. As Tony notes, the Nikon Manual Focus Glass thread is the busiest on the Nikon forum and one of the fastest moving on FM. We will have added 10,000 posts during the time it has taken Best Nikon Shots to add a bit over 900. And the topic of lens suitability and quality comes up quite regularly, especially among new participants to the conversation. With a thread that has over 700 pages and no search function for thread contents, it is practically impossible for anyone to find lens specific information within the thread.
No doubt you're aware that Nikon's manual focus lenses are much prized, not only by Nikon shooters but by Canon shooters as well as those using a wide array of cameras and video gear. My guess is that a well done review section for these lenses would find a wide audience not only within FM but outside. Those of us shooting MF know all the web resources available and there is none I've encountered that permits users to write reviews. I believe it would be very popular and much used.
If you check my profile you'll see 23 manual focus Nikon lenses. I'm definitely missing a few of the gems in Nikon's MF collection. My guess is we'd have a pretty thorough review section with room for 40 lenses, perhaps a bit more then 30 primes and less than ten zooms. If you want a more specific list I'll happily raise the subject on the thread and see what those using them believe belong on this list.
I applaud your intention to refresh the Reviews section. As the go to photography site on the web this is an important resource for all of us. It would be frosting on the cake to have Nikon's great manual focus lenses included. Let's make it happen!
