    The past couple years have seen an influx of new lenses. I used to only worry about learning a new camera every few months, now i am finding myself figuring out quirks of new lenses, some of which have no history and no knowledge base to help.

    Starting this thread to discuss new releases and any user feedback. Feel free to mention any lens new or old in this thread. There are plenty of obscure vintage lenses that find a “new” place in the field. Arri DNA and Lomo rehoused are examples of repurposing or updating older lenses or designs. However, lenses like Zeiss Super Speeds, Ultra Primes, and Cookes have been around and discussed in great detail. So, talking about them is kind of redundant. They are however great lenses to use as references and bench marks when talking about the newer ones and obscure ones.

    Also feel free to discuss any new tech that would/could even make traditional lenses obsolete. This is an ongoing discussion about the tools that are in the first chain of image capture. So, even though computer generated characters could theoretically replace traditional image capture, it is such a different way of going about it, that would be outside the scope of this thread and be a bit of a waste of time. However, talking about holograms or 3D, is fine. It is at least remotely related. The primary intention of this thread is to discuss lenses as we know them todday: optical devices that project an image onto a 2D capture device. But naturally converaaion will drift into other avenues.

    We are increasingly required to use lenses that we have never used before, and may never use again. Even getting a prep day is not enough time to figure out all of the variables involved with some lenses. Many of the cheaper new lenses don’t have much accurate information beyond marketing material.

    If there is an interesting lens you recently used, or are about to use a lens you have questions about, post in this thread.

    CN-E series are the only ones that enable Dual Pixel Focus Guide on C200/300/700.

    Is there a possibility to program Leica R to EF adapter to fool them thinking there is CN-E on them?

    Sometimes DVXUsers need to give each other good natured ribbing, all in good fun.
