Is the All in one Lens viable?

Originally posted in “Couv Camera” by Rod Sager

For several decades now, the so-called “all-in-one” lens has been a tool in the world of lenses.

November 7th Show Cancelled

We waited till the last possible moment, hoping for the best with COVID-19, but alas the disease continues to be a health threat and the government will not allow indoor events large enough to support the Fall PhotoFair this year. We figured this was going to be the case, but held out for the miracle.

This has been a challenging event all over the world and PhotoFair wishes you all the best of health and for those afflicted with Corona Virus may you have a swift and full recovery.

The next show is the 47th annual PhotoFair, scheduled for February 20th, 2021 at the Newark Pavilion.
