In their words, Lensfinder.com is an online marketplace for photographers and cinematographers to buy, sell and learn about used, vintage and boutique lenses.”
What got me interested though is not only the big emphasis on the vintage glass but also the people behind this idea. LensFinder was co-founded by Matthew Duclos and Ryan Avery. Many of you probably know Matt from DuclosLenses and his blog TheCineLens, while Ryan is the man behind many incredible cine lenses from Schneider to Veydra and more recently Tokina Cinema line.
Unlike eBay, LensFinder allows you narrow down your search to very specific requirements, like sensor coverage, age, type of lens or even just lens sets, all of which help you find exactly what you need. Plus website is full of rare, unique and desirable lenses, so it doesn’t take long to find something that makes you want to press that buy button!
