Classic manual focus SLR lenses


Outlandish lenses is all about using adapted lenses on modern mirrorless digital cameras. You'll find articles here about my experiments with some very weird lenses indeed (including some not designed to be used on a camera at all!) together with articles on some of my favourite classic manual focus SLR lenses.

Thinking outside the box like this can be a wonderful way to boost your creativity by allowing you to see the world in new ways. But most of all, it's just a whole lot of fun!

If you haven't tried adapting old lenses to your digital mirrorless camera before, start with the General notes on using adapted lenses article.
