method to search lens reviews by date?

I'd like to be able to check out the most recent reviews. Is there a way to do this? Advanced search in the lens reviews section doesn't seem to have the option.

At the moment, there's no such functionality. Sorry!

I won't be able to add the feature, either- at least not in the near future. It would require a substantial amount of custom coding. But I do agree that it wouldn't hurt to have that feature!

This seems fairly related so I won't start a new thread. I think the default sort for the lens review pages should be newest first. More recent information is better for a number of reasons -- more likely tested with the body you have, any recent quality issues can be addressed, it can be compared to competition that may not have been out a year or two ago, etc. I'm not sure what arguments you could make for the oldest reviews being the most prominent.

Now that's something that can be changed much more easily. However, keep in mind that there are plenty of lenses in the database that have been around for decades. I'll give your suggestion some thought, but I'm personally not a fan of reversing the order of the reviews.

Rather than search for the latest review, I prefer to scan through and find reviews written by those who I am familiar with. Not to say that the other reviews are irrelevant but it is easier to trust the word of someone I know.
