Blog devoted to reviewing old lenses on the NEX...

Hello everyone,

I'm an NEX-3 owner who likes to experiment with adapters & random lenses. I don't have a massive budget, so I stick to "economical" lenses that I find at goodwill, garage sales, and auction sites.

I thought I'd start "reviewing" these old lenses, and collecting the articles on a blog.

Check it out:

My first article is on the Yashica Yashinon 50mm DSB 1.9. Probably one of my favorite lenses.

I also have articles started on my other lenses that I will be posting very soon:

Canon FD 35mm F2 (concave)
Kiron FD 28mm F2
Industar 69 28mm
Olympus OM 50mm 1.8
Canon FD 300mm F5.6
Sony 16mm pancake w/conkin graduated filters

Most of these lenses can be found quite easily, for very little money. My goal is to collect as many economical lenses as possible, see how they perform on the NEX, and post my impressions.

I'd love to hear this communities feedback!
