NIKON Diamagazin SF-200 50 Dias + USB 2.0-4 Port Hub

Make sure your camera has an AF motor built in (higher end Nikons, such as D7000, D7100, any FX camera) otherwise the lens will be completely manual. Also remember if you have a DX sensor, your lens won't be f/1.8 @ 50mm, but something like f/2.7 @...

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Conclusions A lens with a 16.7x zoom ratio is never going to deliver the same performance as a top-end prime lens or a shorter zoom. The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR offers consistent sharpness throughout its zoom range, and while it...

Sony Sonnar T* 135mm F1.8 ZA / SAL135F18Z

The Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm f/1.8 ZA showed an outstanding performance within the APS-C test and it manages to keep most of these qualities on full format sensors as well. The resolution is very good at f/1.8 and great to downright phenomanal beyond. The...

Canon EF - Téléobjectif Zoom 90 / 300 mm

The Canon TS-E 24mm F3.5 L II is a lens which, given its price, has high expectations to meet. The good news is that, in almost all respects, it succeeds - the build quality is exemplary (certainly on a par with the EOS-1 series bodies it's likely to...

Sigma AF 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM

The review lens provided a nice, bright view through the viewfinder of the Canon EOS 40D we used for our tests. Autofocusing was generally fast and accurate, even in relatively low light levels - provided the viewfinder was used for shooting - and the...

Samyang 85 mm / F 1,4 ASP IF AE

this is my 3rd favourite samyang lens after 35mm f1.4 and 24mm f1.4. obviously samyang is not for those who are not comfortable with manual focusing but for my it works great. most of the time i don\'t use them wide open for sharpness and larger depth...

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

There's not much bad to say about the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS—it's one of the best 55-200mm lenses we've seen, but it is on the pricey side.

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC Fish-Eye

This Pro-Optic 8mm f/3.5 is among the best fisheyes I've used. I especially love it's much improved projection compared to other fisheyes, and from f/5.6 and on, it's sharper and/or more free from lateral color fringes than either the exotic Nikon 8mm...

Conclusions The Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited is just as much a gem today as it was when it was introduced nearly two decades ago. It's small, light, nicely built, and, most importantly, deadly sharp. You don't expect such a compact lens to capture...

Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm / F1.4 ASPH

Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC

If you can live with the inherent distortion and the lack of autofocusing, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens provides by far the cheapest way to get a really wide-angle lens that can produce sharp images. It's roughly 1/5 of the price of Canon and Nikon 14mm...
