Lenses
Our lens collection varies as does our camera collection. Many of our lenses are classic or vintage, along with modern higher speed lenses for fast focusing. The age range of out collection is approximately from 1975 to the 2010’s. We keep a collection of some early manual focus glass, sometimes because of the quality, of simply because of the cost.

Sorted by Release Year.
