  • Woodworking and books Regards,
  • By accident I discovered this video from YouTube showing the lens cleaning inside the front element. It is a little bit odd and from a Japonese person... but there is no words, so no worries! I ...
  • I shot Nikon DX cameras exclusively from 2002 to 2014 and I looked for a prime "normal" lens for years. I tested some lenses and even purchased the original Sigma 30 f/1.4... but I never was ...
