Contax 60mm f/2,8 Makro S-Planar

I’ve been thinking for a while to glue it on the Canon 5d mark II…and that should tell you something! It’s really the lens that you will reach in your bag more often that not, unless you shoot Nascar or Formula 1… Scary sharp, contrasty, doesn’t know what the flare is even if you are …

Review: Fuji GS 645

Today I wish to talk about one of the best, if not THE best, cameras I ever used. I’m speaking about the Fuji GS 645, a 4,5×6 medium format rangefinder camera that will fit in your pocket. And without having to sacrify anything. This camera has one of the sharpest lenses ever and a classic …

Review: Nikon 60mm f/2,8 Micro AF

Picture from Nikon.com Built like a little tank, but with a stiff focusing ring (compared to the manual version tested above), it’s not one of my favourite lenses. It is very sharp, whit an higher contrast respect the old Non-Ai version, but the images have a less pleasing and distinctive look. Not bad, indeed a …
