Lens Reviews and PDFs

The number of lenses reviewed on this blog has reached a point at which an easily accessible list would be of great benefit to new visitors. Up until now, I have just been utilizing the "key word" list to the right of the posting column. A dedicated page just makes more sense!

NOTE: Some of the lenses share their optical formula with others on the list, as well as some which are not listed. Although the lenses may be optically the same but marketed under different names (and that will be mentioned in the reviews), I have not listed the siblings here unless I have personally handled and used them.
