Favorite YouTube channels about adapted/vintage lenses?

What are your favourite channels for camera lenses? Doesn’t need to just be vintage.

I drift in an out of adapted lenses and forget where I see good advice. This forum is useful, but it is also nice to have an expert make videos about old lenses.

Two that come to mind are:

  1. Simon's Utak - shares my love for Takumars and also has a Flickr account worth following. Last videos were 3 months ago which is probably why I am doing this thread. Very informative ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  2. Zenography - zen is a good word as his voice sometimes makes me feel sleepy (has helped me have an afternoon nap a couple of times). I like that he leans to the budget side of things. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I noticed someone saying a YouTube link was deleted in a thread earlier, hence no links. They are easy to find.

ps. and to save making a new thread: if anyone wants to recommend a 135mm or any 100+mm prime under $50, that would be great (ideally PK, M42 or L39). To be used for wildlife. I know a zoom would be good but my excellent Pentax-A 70-210mm f4 was too heavy; I will use one of the bargain tele converters instead if needed.
