I love camera gear and picture taking. This is a window to my world of photography -- how I see through the lenses and what gear I use.

Black & White Pictures from Old Lenses
I have noticed that most old, uncoated lenses have very nice tones, especially when converted to black and white, there are just so much details. These old lenses were designed for black and white film, so it kind of makes sense. The lower contrast of these lenses gives the pictures smoother tonal transitions. If you are a lover of black and white pictures, you may want to give these old lenses a try.
