Aaron Cabitto, a security engineer from Fredericksburg Virginia has been an avid photographer for over 20 years. Although he likes the quality of his Fuji lenses he missed the unique character of the older lenses he used in his film days. He says that sometimes new lenses are almost too perfect…too sterile for his taste
He says the capturing the moment is more important than making everything tack sharp.
So Aaron began to acquire a collection of vintage lenses from several different brands like Voigtlander, Nikkor, Pentax and more. He adapts them to his Fuji X-Pro3 with inexpensive adaptors from TTartisan and K&F.
Of course these lenses are all manual focus which Aaron says challenges him to slow down and be more intentional when he shoots.
