Two New Faces

For two years I was the only author on this blog but I am very happy that I now have two co-authors  who are as passionate about photography and (manual) lenses as I am. There are so many interesting lenses out there that I have no chance to cover them all alone and together we can cover a lot more lenses.

I think it is about time to introduce them after they have already published a few articles.

Jannik Peters

0709120d-b4c9-4b04-bc6b-48f25a6ebe42Jannik works as an engineer and 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.

Bastian is specialized in M-mount and Nikon F-mount lenses. So far he has published reviews of the Voigtlander  2/28, Voigtlander 5.6/12 and Leica Summicron 2/90 pre-ASPH.

More recently I have reviewed many Zeiss lenses but I also bought my first lenses from Olympus (OM 2/100) and Pentax (SMC K 3.5/28) which I both like a lot and I look forward to exploring both systems a bit more. In the past I have reviewed many Canon FD and Minolta SR lenses and I plan to review a few more Minoltas in 2016.

I have two hobbies: Photography and photographic gear. Both are related only to a small degree.
