Whilst penning a review of my favourite semi wide-angle medium format lens, I realised that I’d not updated my experience with Yongnuo’s 60mm F/2 Macro EF lens.

A question I'm often asked - what is your favourite 50mm lens? - is tough to answer. In terms of aesthetics, Voigtländer's 50mm 1,5 Nokton ASPH is hard to beat.

Soon after the GFX-50s was announced I sold my Hasselblad CFV-50c and Linhof M679cs. And, under the assumption that I'd use it like my favourite 50mm lens, I purchased the 63mm F/2,8 GF lens.
Reviews for it are good. It is light, easy to use, and despite making F150-like noises when focusing, keeps to itself. I hope to use it someday. Until then, I'll use it as a prop, or advertising for my portfolio.Read More
I wasn’t a 40mm guy on 26 November when my VM 40mm/F1,2 copy came in. After capturing about a thousand images of my daughter, a few of my wife, and about a dozen bokeh frames of our beloved IKEA Christmas tree, I’m ready to say that I’m still not a 40mm guy- at least not on a Leica M.Read More
