Nikon AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED

Excellent all-purpose lense. No need to spend top-dollar when this lense will take care of most situations. We already owned this lens but the camera was dropped one too many times and the auto focus wouldn't work anymore. To Nikon's credit, the...

Samyang 85 mm / F 1,4 ASP IF AE

If you enjoy the challenge of manual focusing, this lens is spectacular -both in terms of price and the competition (ie Nikon 85mm). I had the AF Nikon and this to directly compare. The choice was so easy. This lens is sharp, solidly constructed and...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8

We tested the review lens on two camera bodies, the OM-D E-M5 and OM-D E-M10, which were effectively indistinguishable for both the regular Imatest tests and normal shooting. Autofocusing was as fast as each camera supports and generally very quiet,...

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6

love this lens, you can capture subjects that are quite far off. Very light weight, excellent quality, fair price, found it for much higher prices elsewhere.

Canon EF-S 24mm F2.8 STM

Historically, Canon hasn't been known for making pancake lenses. Just a few years ago it dipped its toes into the water of the ultra-slim prime lens space with the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM for full-frame camera bodies. Joining it is the inexpensive Canon EF-S...

Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG OS

Overall, the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS is a good buy at the price, but it's still outclassed by the more expensive Nikon 70-300mm VR and Tamron 70-300mm VC USD lenses.

Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L EF IS USM Lens

The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L IS is an impressive piece of engineering. However, its immense zoom range doesn't come without compromises - especially on a high resolution full format DSLR. The resolution figures are actually pretty good in the...

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens

The Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III does not offer image quality and sharpness comparable to primes or L series lenses. However, it is a good introductory lens for amateur photographers who are still finding their interests in various streams of...

Tiffen Filter 82 mm

When they say 77mm they mean 77mm! Fits perfectly on my Nikon 10-24mm lens. Just using for protection of the expensive lens. The prior filter did its job and took its punishment well. This is a replacement.

Tiffen Filter 67 mm

As the name implies "Essential Kit" it is essential for anyone that invests in an expensive digital SLR camera. It comes with 3 Tiffen filters and a case. I shoot most of my pictures outdoors and a good circular polarizer filter is essential general...

Tamron AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens

While the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens is not Tamron's first 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, it is their first version to include vibration control.VC alone is a great upgrade feature, but the upgraded image quality in this lens is also big bonus.This...

The effect from this filter is not very noticable. at all.. from the preview images and reviews I was expecting something along the lines of an Instagram filter, where things really change. But Alas, it is nothing like that and post processing will...

Tiffen 55mm Digital HT #812 Warming Glass Filter

I'm really enjoying this filter! I wanted a lensbaby but couldn't afford it quite yet and ended up buying this one. Works very well! Doesn't have an extreme blurring effect around the edges, but layering 2 probably would. I was taught that a good...

Tiffen 52mm Hot Mirror Filter

This filter does not work like a lineal polarizer, it is more like a circular polarizer. I compared this product with my Sunpak circular polarizer in front of my laptop screen and the Sunpak turned completely black the screen, and the Tiffen "lineal"...

Sigma 18 - 200 / 3,5 - 6,3 DC /ASP./IF

I bought this for my Pentax K-30, and one of the factors leaning me towards this lens was the OS or optical stabilizer. When I received the lens it turned out that the manual says "The optical stabilizer is a feature not supported for Pentax cameras"...
