For 4 days now my site is already available and I have had more than 130 visitors since then without to much content, who have generated more than 600 clicks. In addition I had many comments in several Facebook Groups with positive feedback for this project.
Now it’s time to fill all areas of this page with content. On the one hand I would like to provide a comprehensive database in the area of adapting old manual lenses to modern cameras, on the other hand I would liket o fill this page with content to get a good google ranking.
I have the following plans for this page:
- Camera section: There will be a separate page for each camera system, describing which old and manual lenses are best suited to use. Among other things, advantages and disadvantages are to be shown here. It is important to me that I am advised by an “expert” to avoid any false bullshit. So if someone can write some lines about another camera system based on what I wrote about Sony E- and Sony A-Mount please contact me.
- Lens section: In addition, there will also be an area where everything revolves around lens mounts of old manual lenses. Here I want to present the advantages and disadvantages of different lens mount systems and give helpful tips.
- Blog: In the blog I will presend and review all my own lenses and describe their special features. I will try to be as standardised as possible on aspects such as sharpness (centre and corners), bokeh, colour rendering and vignetting. THe plan is currently to review one lens a week. In addition, I would also like to conduct interviews with other lovers of old manual vintage lenses and let you have a sneak-peak in our world. Apart from these two points, there will occasionally be other postings about eccessories, special techniques, comparisons and other photographoc gimmicks.
If you have any suggestions, wishes or questions in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me either publicly by comment or quietly and secretly by mail. I am looking forward to any feedback and criticism (as long as it is formulated in a reasonably constructive way).
