I am interested in one of your books.

I would like to know if you do evaluations and reviews of the Rokkor LTM 
I shoot with a few of them and really enjoy them and the images they 
produce.  I'd be interested to know about their makeup, how they perform 
against similar lenses, what different lenses were actually made by Minolta, 

As I don't know the breadth of your book, I don't even know if this is what 
you discuss in it.  Perhaps a brief review of your work (or a link to one if 
it already exists) would be helpful.

Your book not having this information wouldn't ultimately prevent me from 
buying one - but it would greatly enhance my desire to have one if it does.
