It's Pulaski Day in Chicago, and we're celebrating by talking about adapting lenses. We lose Simon part way through the episode, but Perry and Johnny continue on. The guys talk about a number of unique classic lenses ideal for adapting, and take a deep dive into the techniques for fitting them to film and digital cameras.
