There are some lenses I would like to review one day, but the more interesting (read: rare and expensive) they are, the less feasible it is for me to buy them just to write a review.
Thanks to several readers here I already got the opportunity to remove several lenses from this list in the past, but there are still some left:
Sony FE 12-24mm 2.8 GM
Sony FE 14mm 1.8 GM
Samyang 18mm 2.8 AF Review coming soon
Sony FE 20mm 1.8 G

How does it work?
If you happen to have any of these lenses, you live in the EU and you would be willing to part with them for a few weeks for me to write a review and support this blog please get in contact.
You can leave a comment with your E-mail address (it won’t be visible to the public) or you can find me on plenty of social media platforms.
I will pay for the shipping both ways, but for some of the more expensive lenses this might only be feasible if you are from Germany, as properly insured shipping even within the EU can already be several hundreds of €uros for both ways combined. Money, the reviews of the more obscure lenses will not generate in a hundred years 🙂
