Samsung S1855IB ( EX-S1855IB )

This entry-level digital SLR is easy to use, but its images didn't look very sharp.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85/3,5-4,5 G ED

This was a lens bought for use in railway photography which proved to be a little soft at full aperture; whilst giving reasonably acceptable results with D200 / D300 bodies they were not of sufficient quality to be considered by the user for...

Canon 58mm 1X UV Filter

I bought 2 of these, one to protect my Canon EFS 18-55mm lens and the other to protect my Canon EF 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM lens, and they fit perfectly. Unlike other reviewers I've had no issues with the lens caps fitting the filters and also I use...

Sigma 55-200mm F4-5.6 DC Sigma

The Sigma AF 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DC is a budget lens and it shows in some aspects such as small max. aperture combined with a limited zoom range and some mechanical shortcomings (rotating front element and coupled focus ring). Nonetheless the lens is also...

Canon EF 35mm f/2.0

The Canon EF 35mm f/2.0 Lens is a tiny, light and inexpensive Canon lens. It turns out to be a good performer as well making this lens a good value

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS

Particularly when shooting indoors, or from the deck of a ship or ferry, I really appreciated Sigma's effective Optical Stabilizer technology.

Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ED / EZ-M1442

It's hard not to fall for the E-P1's charms. The unashamedly nostalgic design combines with true SLR quality in a remarkably pocketable package. The lack of flash and viewfinder will put some off, as will the relatively slow focus, but overall this...

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6

A compact super-telephoto lens giving an equivalent angle of view of a 140-600mm on a full frame camera.

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (5.3x)

While I hope to create a full Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content...

Sigma 55 - 200 / 4,0 - 5,6 DC HSM

You get what you pay - and that's not much. I first thought, I'm to stupid to get really sharp pictures, but the lens just can't do more than about 6 MPix. Also the minimum focus distance is very long (1.1m!).

Nikon AF-S 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G DX Zoom Nikkor - (35mm Zoom)

The mid-priced 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5, is much more than just the ideal compromise. Not many years ago it would have been pure fancy to propose a £200 lens that featured ED glass, an aspherical element, internal focusing and instant manual intervention in...

The fourth version of Tamron's popular 10.7X superzoom since 1999, this 28-300mm ($600, street) is the first Tamron to offer image stabilization. Called "VC" for "Vibration Compensation," the system is the industry's first to use a three-coil design...

Nikon SB-400

Nikon's huge AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/2.8G ED VR lens is so big it comes in its own special suitcase. At almost Nikon3,000 its price tag is beyond the reach of even the most serious enthusiasts. That said, this lens is beautifully constructed and elegantly...

Canon 50/1.8

For many years, a fixed focal length (prime) 50mm lens was standard for film SLRs.Although 50mm lenses are not nearly as popular as they used to be, there are still many people who want one of these in their kit.

Sony 16

The Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM ($799.99) may be available as a kit lens with the Sony Alpha 77 II camera, but its fixed f/2.8 aperture and wide-angle field of view separate it from more common lenses like the DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II. It's pretty...

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras

I've just been getting started in amateur photography and as such didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a zoom lens. This seemed like the ideal option, mainly because it was the least expensive Canon zoom lens I could find and had a 4...
