Thanks Scott.
I guess I would like to stay with the older 'look' but that doesn't necessarily mean it has to be an old lens. I've noticed venturing into Wetplate has really opened my eyes to all the different kinds of lenses. I have much to learn! I just wish I could just try them all out and buy the ones I like
I look on Ebay and go 'oh that would probably be cool!'....not exactly the best way to spend money
With film and digital I was always looking for the sharpest, lightest lenses, now I want to explore lenses that add 'character' and compliment the wet plate process. Weight really isn't an issue any more...and neither is a shutter! Or for that matter, stops can be avoided
