Without anyone to guide me in my Leica journey, I made several punishingly bad purchasing mistakes. What I needed was a friend who was like me to tell me what to buy. I had nobody to help me. It was a mess. I was a mess.
The Recommended List is intended to give you lens purchasing advice as if you were my brother, father, girlfriend, wife, cousin, or boss and do it in a way that makes sense to normal people. If your situation is the same as mine, I should also be able to save you money and time with your purchasing decisions.
I have been at this for about a decade but I finally have a set of lenses I am happy with. In The Recommended List, I summarize my research, let you know which lenses I kept and which ones I sold, and compare and contrast different lenses so you understand my thought process.
Nothing in The Recommended list is sponsored. I struggled with which lenses to buy just like I am sure you are doing right now. I didn’t test everything under the sun. In each list I explain why I chose which lenses to test and which ones I think you should still consider even if I didn’t test. You are going to find that thought process interesting.
As I mentioned before, if your situation is like mine, and you think like I do, I am almost certain I can save you money and headaches on your journey. As such, I am asking you to support this website with a one-time payment of $14.99 to access The Recommended List. That single payment will give you lifetime access to The Recommended List and future updates. There is also a no questions asked money-back guarantee.
