72mm Domed White Balance Lens Cap

I ordered this white balance lens cap because it could snap on your lens and would be easy to white balance with. It looked like a fast and efficient way to pre-white balalnce. Instead what I got was a Poloroid white balancing cap yes, but it was a...

The lenses are good quality lenses but the zoom has to be almost fully extended to eliminate the sides of the tube adapter from showing. Also, if the zoom is fully extended on the tele 2x zoom lens, it will create a blurred picture. The last con is...

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM Lens

At 55mm, it can magnify the subject to 0.28x normal size. Even the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, my best macro zoom lens, can only achieve closest focus distance of 0.5m and magnifies the subject to 0.19x normal size. Of course, this is far...

Canon 55-250 mm IS

The construction of this lens does not feel cheap. Or it must be that the lens is very light and the housing is made of plastic. Also the mount of the Canon EF-S 55-250 mm IS mk2 is made of plastic. The autofocus is very fast in good light, but in low...

The problem is the majority of the Sony Lens are 55mm or 49mm which mean these lens are not compatible with all those Sony cameras listed. If you check your owners manual you will see what I mean.

Vivitar 100 - 400 / 4,5 - 6,7

I bought this to shoot airshows and kids' outdoor sports (soccer, baseball, football), originally on a film body but the last few years on a DX digital body. For those uses it is great, considering I paid so little for it. However the autofocus is...

Sony 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6

Almost certainly a cosmetic update of the Konica Minolta 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6 released shortly before KM ceded its camera business, this 27-105mm equivalent, produced for the new Sony Alpha 100, turns in some impressive performance numbers, but hides its...

If you're looking for something to do a decent job at a fish eye effect, this is your thing. It does a pretty good job-it doesn't catch the entire tunnel look on my camera, but maybe on your's-but it does have one big downfall: indoor shooting. When...

I use this with my Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens. Attached to my Nikon D60 it will give you an equivalent 600mm focal length, keep in mind that you will lose 2 stops so you will be down to 5.6 which is not a problem if you are shooting in good light. Welll...
