Change to searches in lens reviews


I don't know if I've changed something in my search settings, or the forum has changed, but something is no longer as it was

I used to be able to search the lens reviews with terms like "50" or "50 f2.8" and get various lenses to come up. Some times it would include lenses that seemed to have nothing to do with the search terms I used. However, now, no matter what term I use I'm not getting any hits. So I can't tell if something in my default search conditions has changed, or something on the back end is no longer working.

You're right- the "dumb" search in the databases is currently broken if you search from the main search box. While we fix that, please use the new search system for Pentax and current third-party lenses:
