“all lenses are sharp… but modern lenes lack flavor”, Hong Kong camera guardian David Chan 

Here’s a camera store and collector that I’d love to meet someday!  Short video worth watching even just for the camera ‘porn’.

He says something interesting to me (in the text translation anyhow) that “all lenses today are sharp”, but that modern lenses can lack flavor and can’t produce the unique texture that vintage lenses could.

I think might be true.  Many of the modern lenses are very well corrected, and perhaps some of the aberrations in older lenses are what provide the character.  What do you think?
