    Simple question...I have roughly 52 total lenses reviewed using 2350 hi-res photos (didn't bother with kit lenses or low popularity lenses). Just looking at my folder NAV at the left, in your opinion, what lens(es) is/are missing from the bunch?

    Thanks,
    Roy

    I don't see Leica, Zeiss, or Sony lenses.

    I can think of 6 or 7 Pentax lenses that are missing. :D


    Do you need names?

    Thanks for all the input...sure...names do help...all of my sample photos are from flickr users...I reach out to them asking permission and display thier flickr urls and website urls etc. having a full name of the lens I search tags to see if a potential flickr user has both the volume and hi-res samples.

    Boy I've got much more work to do.

    Thanks,
    Roy

    Oh I know...in fact there are only 3 users on flickr that I could ask for photos. It's just so far out of reach for 99% of us out here...but yea...stuff is good eye candy.

    I've gotta get some Sony and Lecia/Zeiss stuff going too. Thanks for the input.

    If you can think of very common/emerging lenses that are highly demanded in today's DSLR market that I don't have review, then those will be the ones I tackel first.

    Thanks,
    Roy

    Learn to like peanut butter and jelly. Eat peanut butter and jelly. Become peanut butter and jelly on a daily basis. I did for 2 years (pretty much) and I am loving my 400 f2.8 that came a couple of weeks ago. Darn it's good to eat beef again. :lol:
