TTArtisan 28mm f/5.6 Review – by Vincent Bihler, Dave Young and Hamish Gill

Unusually, this review has 3 authors. I (Hamish) was sent the TTArtisan 28mm f/5.6 lens to try a few months ago. Not long later, Vincent got in touch to say he was going to review it for this website too. I soon suggested we combine our efforts. I then became incredibly busy with work, and …

An Industar-69 mounted to a Fuji X-Pro3.

Industar-69 (on Fujifilm X-Pro3) Review – A Dreamy, Compact Wonder – By Don Goodman Wilson

The Industar-69 (Индуста́р-69) is a strange but beguiling beast. Originally designed for the Chaika (Чайка) camera, it wasn’t really meant to be used with other cameras. The original Chaika’s lens wasn’t removable; on later models it was affixed with an M39 thread, apparently with the intent that photographers could mount it on an enlarger for printmaking. This intent might be apocryphal, I can’t properly tell. There’s not a lot of primary sources of information on this lens out there on the interwebs that I can find, only a handful of people repeating the same information.

Nikon (Nippon Kogaku) W-Nikkor.C 2.8cm f/3.5 LTM – Nikon’s Tiny Gems, pt 2 – By Agata Urbaniak

Reading about a lens is one thing, but using it is quite another. And just because a lens looks good on paper doesn’t necessarily mean it will appeal to a particular photographer and make them get out there and shoot. A lot of the time aspects that have little to do with optical quality, such as size, can set a lens apart from similar offerings. And if pocketable camera gear floats your boat, it doesn’t get much better than the W-Nikkors for LTM.

Canon 28mm 2.8 ltm

Canon 28mm f/2.8 LTM – A Short Review – By Atanas Grozdev

I started to shoot on film in a cold winter of 2014. I used to shoot mainly with compact film cameras with color negative film, were I tried to test as many as possible of them. In the summer of 2018 I bought my first Olympus XA and them become in love with rangefinders and black and white photography. I then began to dream for of buying a Leica, and soon found myself with an M7 and 7Artisans 35mm f/2. Then a month ago, I picked up this Canon 28mm f/2.8 ltm.
