| p.2 #10 · Add Nikon Manual Focus Lenses to Review Section |
Curtis I think the 24 F2 is a good one as it is usually a hot debate lens. The Tessar 45 2.8 ??, this is a lens I want because it is so small and so good. Also no section for the most modern of the MF glass? PC-E?
A few of the rare lenses like the 80-200, 200-400, 800 5.6, 1200mm would be nice as not a ton of info on them is out there..but again out of range for most people.
Again, if we're going to rely on folks who've used a lens to give us their first hand experience, the more exotic and expensive the lens the less likely we'll have meaningful reviews to share. I agree with Monty that this needs to be a priority for this exercise. Is anybody actually shooting with the 24 f/2 AI-s now that Tony has dumped his?
With regard to the PC-E lenses I'm with you that they're great lenses but I believe since they are part of the current Nikon stable that they would best be included in that section of the reviews despite the fact they may only be used with manual focus. I say that in part to try to keep the number of lenses down.
Yes, an argument can be made for the 45 f/2.8, a lens that Mihai enjoys using and would surely comment upon. Let's see where we end up with once everyone's wish list has been addressed. Then we can broach the subject with Fred and see how much room he'll devote to this project.
