Olympus WCON-08B 0.8X Wide Extension Lens for E-10

I bought this lens for a Nikon D50 SLR using a 19-35mm Tokina lens. I'd seen an on-line test using exactly the same combination so I thought I was getting a bargain---15mm on the wide end. The lens works, but in several of my pictures, pretty much any...

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (5.8x)

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a good alternative to an 18-55mm kit lens; it's sharp throughout its zoom range, and affordable.

Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D

While I hope to create a full Nikon 35mm f/2D AF 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 management systems for...

Nikon 10,5 / 2,8 DX G ED

Conclusions It's not often that I think of a lens as especially fun to use—photography is an enjoyable hobby, but it's more about the experience than the tool used to get a shot. I'd say that the Nikon AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED is an...

Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F2.8

With long optics it is very prone to camera shake. Even at 1000th of a second you will see ghosting if you shoot at 3 ft away from a subject for macro. Great portraits though. Also got to look out that the camera will not be able to judge the iso...

Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R Lens - Black

The 40-150mm is a good telephoto lens for interchangeable lens cameras that is incredibly lightweight and pretty sharp. Its build quality is not as refined as we would like, though the plastic construction isn't surprising given the budget price.

Hama UV Filter 390 (O-Haze), 77 mm

I've got a couple of these now for my L series lenses as they a meant to be pretty good and hopefuly will not spoil the good work that the lens is doing. I haven't tried any others to compare but this seems good.

Sony SAL-75300

Olympus 9 mm / F 8,0 FISHEYE

Conclusions The Olympus Fisheye Body Cap Lens 9mm isn't an optical marvel. If you want a fish-eye with top-notch image quality, you need to spend more on the Olympus 8mm f1.8 PRO lens or the Panasonic 8mm F3.5. But for photographers who simply want to...

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM

Many a photographer has looked to Canon's "nifty fifty"—the EF 50mm f/1.8 II USM ($125.99)—as a first lens due to its attractive price and wide aperture. The first update to the lens in nearly two decades, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM ($125.99), keeps the...

The Canon EF 180mm f/3.5 L USM Macro Lens is Canon's longest macro lens.This lens offers the longest 1:1 macro working distance of any Canon lens and produces a beautifully smooth out of focus background.Another distinction the 180 L has is that it is...

Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8

The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 is a tiny prime lens for Fuji X cameras. It's very sharp in the center, but edge performance isn't the greatest.

Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD for Nikon AF

The difference between a “constant” aperture zoom and other standard zooms is that when you increase the focal length on the standard zoom the maximum aperture narrows. This might make the difference between being able to hand hold or not when zooming...

Pentax 15 mm / F 4,0 HD/DA/ED/AL LIMITED

Conclusions If you're a wide-angle shooter, the Pentax HD DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited is the smallest, lightest lens you can get for your APS-C Pentax SLR system. It's not the widest; there's an older 14mm f/2.8 prime, but it's downright huge in...

Panasonic LUMIX G FISHEYE 8mm / F3.5 Lens (H-F008)

Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD

Purchased this item from Emmy Photo and it came with an awesome Mack 7 Yr warranty. Great lens for the value. A tad slow in low light, but the value of the focal length, vc, and Emmy's service made it an awesome deal.

Sigma 30 mm / F 2,8 EX DN

You can get some very sharp photos with this lens, even wide open. Its small size and light weight make it an excellent prime lens for my Sony Nex cameras, and its 2.8 maximum aperture, though not super-fast, is plenty fast enough for most situations....
