a bit about those behind manual focus uk

James and Andrew started out with a blog about birding around the Somerset Levels. It's called The EFRS which you can find HERE. However Andrew had a bit of a revelation when he discovered that using a simple and cheap adapter you can put lots of rather nice old lenses on your modern day DSLR. So he thought he would try one. The 'one' turned out to be a Takumar Super Multi Coated 50mm f1.4 M42 mount made in about 1971. The rest is history as he became a bit of a Takumar fanboy and has gathered quite a collection of interesting stuff that you can read more about HERE.
James got the bug a bit later when Andrew kindly lent him a couple of Carl Zeiss Jena DDR 50mm and 135mm lenses. He's been dabbling ever since.
This blog is more of an exercise in what happens when you use these lenses rather than showing off our best work so you will often see similar images showing a thought process and experimentation which doesn't always work. Hope its of interest and we're always open to opinions and critique so fire away!
