Canon macro lens - 50 mm

I purchased this lens to complement the recent purchase of a Canon T2i. I had the choice of getting the 18-55mm lens or this 50mm f/2.5, I selected this lens as my first lens purchase because of reviews noting its sharp optical quality. As for the...

Sony VCL HGE07TB - Converter

The lens was as advertised. Increases the ability to take close wide shots using the TG5V and TG1 handycams, (fits both). Easy to snap on and remove. Slides in the grove just behind the built in lens housing. Camera does not stay in focus when you zoom...

Tiffen 405HZE 40.5mm UV Haze-1 Filter (Clear)

This is perfect for my new Olympus E-PL1. I bought this to protect my lens and, for that, it's perfect. Personally, I don't see any difference in my pictures but I'm very amateur and haven't done any tests. Note: I received mine with a very small...

hama 70172 uv-filter 390  o-haze 72 0mm  vergutet

A cheap filter that works well. Nice build quality, well packaged, screws on perfectly to my lens. For just over a tenner I couldn't ask for more.

Sigma 80 - 400 / 4,5 - 5,6 APO /EX/DG/RF/OS

The Sigma AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 EX OS is an impressive piece of equipment. In terms of build quality Sigma seems to have catched up with the genuine brand offerings. Nonetheless the lens didn't convince completely. In the lab the sheer quality figures...

Sunpak Digital Slave Unit with Preflash Cancellation, Multi Flash & Sync Socket

I picked up this unit as a solution to be able to tie in studio strobes to a consumer level camera. So far it works great, the only downside is that I dropped it once and the red filter for the flash sensor popped off. Nothing a little super glue can't...

Sakar 72MM High Def 22x Telephoto Lens

I'm relatively new to DSLR photography, but I'm using these on an 18-200 Nikon lens with a D700s. I'm quite happy with the UV filter. Good piece of glass that doesn't seem to hurt the picture at all. I just used the CPL and so far I'm happy with it...

Tamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical

This lens is one of my all time favorites. It's fairly light, tack sharp, and has a decent zoom range. The main problem is with mountaineering you tend to want either wide angle or telephoto, which this lens is neither. So, you end up taking multiple...

Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D AF Nikkor

This is a hidden gem for the price point. Reasonably fast focus, sharp, great range, slight distortion at28mm. This is certainly not a pro lens but it holds up quite well if used properly.

Sony VCL-DH1758 Telekonverter

This lens is absolutely amazing for the price of $100. I was blown away by the sharpness and clarity. Lens only weighs about 8 ounces, so portability is no problem. I have purchased other lenses for my DSLR for much more money that do not begin to...

Leica Elmarit-M (S1129520)

Superb lens ! Very sharp, from the center to the edges and very lightweight compared to its companions. The mechanical quality is that of a swiss chronograph. No tolerances ! And focussing with the focussing tab is fast, convenient and efficient. The...

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 @...

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens is a great leave-on-the-camera lens - It is going to share this role with my 17-55.

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...
