The Team

This blog was started in 2014 by Phillip, hence the domain but for some time know we have run it as a team. If you want to follow us check out our Facebook site.

Jannik Peters

0709120d-b4c9-4b04-bc6b-48f25a6ebe42Jannik is 25-years-old and he works as an engineer. He lives in northern Gemany.

Jannik is interested in many lens systems but I would say that his focus is on two manufacturers: Zeiss and Canon FD. So far he has published reviews of the Zeiss Loxia 2.8/21, Zeiss Sonnar 3.5/100 and a comparison of 35mm Canon FD lenses.

I started using E-mount cameras with the A7 and adapting M-mount and Nikon F-mount lenses. Now the E-mount lineup is a little more interesting to me, especially the Zeiss Loxia and Voigtlander lenses and I added some of those to my kit.

DSC01359My passion for manual lenses started in 2011 when I bought a Sony Nex-3 to use Minolta SR-mount lenses. I was instantly hooked and used many Minolta and Canon FD lenses. Nowadays I still use cheaper legacy lenses but also a few Sony FE lenses and especially modern manual Voigtlander lenses.
