I wrote an article over the weekend, the first in a series - about lenses. Not that we haven't heard it all before, but it has a decidedly M system slant to it. Since it's a "basics" kind of article, it's just that - defining a lens and its basic controls, etc.
Today my mind was racing with ideas and I ended up just dumping it all into another article, which is the second of the series. It goes into more details about actually using a lens for creative purposes.
There will be at least a third part, which I'm still formulating - which will cover more advanced topics. Things like chromatic and spherical aberrations, floating and aspherical elements, etc.
Anyway, I thought I might mention them to my esteemed colleagues here at GetDPI for informational purposes and maybe to elicit a little peer review and see what y'all think. Feedback is always appreciated, of course. But I might point out that articles (and reviews) on the site are constantly updated to be as accurate and complete as possible rather than just gather dust. That and the fact that I get ideas after publishing and just don't have the time to do it all at once...
