This dedicated mini-site is version 2.0 of the Lens Review Diary launched at the Old Blog in April 2009. This new version 2.0 takes advantage of a dedicated blog structure to provide more functionality, including the #1 requested feature, a free full-text RSS feed.
So what is this about? It is a reference mini-site, collecting lens reviews from the photo-blogo-sphere. We are taking advantage of the internal TypePad blog categories (aka tags, labels) to organize the lens reviews in different categories. This can make it easier for people to drill-down to lenses they are interested in.
You can find the various groupings in the left and right sidebar of this mini-site. Some of the categories we have:
+ lens mount: Canon EOS, Nikon, Alpha, K-mount, Four Thirds, etc
+ lens manufacturer: Canon, Nikon, Sigma, etc
+ sensor for which the lens was built: 35mm FF, APS-C, etc
The above categories apply to every lens review. We also have some specialty sub-categories for different types of lenses as follows:
How this mini-site will grow
Going forward, we will be adding new reviews as they get posted. As far as catching up to older reviews, here is the order:
Stage #1: Catch up from May 10 until May 31
Stage #2: Import the reviews from the old Lens Review Diary
Stage #3: Add older reviews by website, starting with the bigger ones
This process will take some time before we catch up with everything. Hopefully we can finish this before the Photokina 2010 wave hits us, but there is no guarantee...
