you nailed it Henning

work with a lens long enough
to discover its rendering qualities

the real magic
within a successful photograph
does not come
from any particular piece of glass
whether with good or "bad" contrast
or good or "bad" resolution

the magic comes from
the photographer knowing
what each lens will render
and choosing that lens
which will render
the photographer's vision
of the subject and light chosen

our search for lenses
lights and light modifiers
films, sensors, et al = our search for our look

Fond regards,
