When the Contax G1 was introduced, in 1994, I was immediately smitten. Leicas were out of my price range and, despite the accuracy of Leica’s viewing and focusing, the thought of composing through a viewfinder and not seeing exactly what the lens was seeing made me queasy, especially when out on assignment. The G1 was different. It was a rangefinder camera, but it offered the choice of manual...

Lensbaby lenses are like chicken recipes in that they are basically variations of a common theme with each new model being unique, and similarly different.

I have long championed smaller, lighter lenses. If I can find a high-performing compact lens that’s sharp and renders natural-looking out-of-focus specular highlights (good bokeh), I’m interested even if it only has a maximum aperture of f/3.5 or f/4.5. And if I can find a sharp, compact lens with image quality that equals comparable lenses costing two, three, or four times the price, sign me up...
