In my photoblog I’ve started a series on manual lenses. The first lens out is a Hanimex 72-162mm f/3.5 lens with a FD mount that I’m using with my Canon EOS 20D and a FD-EOS adapter. It’s my defacto concert-lens and I’ll be starting off with a series of concert pictures. Next up is a MIR-1 37mm f/2.8 M42 mount lens. Be sure to follow the photoblog for the next couple of days and see if you find these lenses usable. I’ve payed £10 for the 72-162mm and $20 for the MIR-1 through eBay, so perhaps you’ll find that you can have great lenses for a bargain! :-) Then again, perhaps you’ll conclude that it’s a waste of time and money and be glad that I tested this and not you. Let me know what you think!
