Since joining the Fujifilm mirrorless eco-system, one of the things I’ve enjoyed most is using vintage manual focus lenses on the system. The amount of affordable, yet good performing, lenses out there is staggering. Not only are most of these old lenses cheap, but they also add a ton of character to the images that you simply can not get by using the newer optically perfected, ultra sharp lenses. Sharpness really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in my book. I’d rather look at an image with soft gloomy highlights with aberrations all over the place, than a clinically perfect super shot. It’s the same with human beings. It’s our flaws that makes us unique. Its these flaws that enhance beauty by giving us immediate reference through presence of the less-than-perfect.
