This time last year, I didn’t feel I’d had enough visits to 35hunter to justify a “best of” post.
Plus my visits and page views have increased over 1000%!
So in case you were wondering, here are the top five posts written in 2017, ranked by page views –
Lens Love #1 – Pentacon 50mm f/1.8 M42 – In which I raved about one of the best value and closest focusing vintage 50s out there.
Lens Love #2 – Auto Chinon 50mm f/1.7 PK – In which, er, I raved about one of the best Pentax K mount 50s out there, a genuine rival to the ubiquitous Pentax-M 50/1.7.
Preset Aperture Lenses – How They Work And Why You Need At Least One – Where I gushed my love of preset and often many bladed aperture lenses like the Helios 44-2 and Jupiter-37A.
How To Start Film Photography For £27 – Which does exactly what it says, shows you how to start shooting film super cheaply.
The Only Lens You’ll Ever Need – Yay, another lens post! This one’s essentially an ode to the wonders that are Asahi Takumars.
