This Lens with the 30mm Fisheye PE & 50mm PE are the only lenses I own for Landscape Photography in Panoramic Format with the Bronica 135mm W Panoramic Backs. Between the 3 Lenses, this one is my favorite due to it's size & perspective or angle of...

Nikon HB-7 Lens Hood (Bayonet) for 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF Lens

I bought this at B&H for $29.99. It mounts on my 80-200 f2.8D perfectly & securely. Matches the lens nicely cosmetically. It takes up a lot of space in my camera bag, but what can you do, the lens is big. Reduces flare greatly. I highly recommend it.

Close-up lenses are no substitute for macro accessories such as a bellows unit and extension ring, but they do allow you to take close-up shots covering a subject field with the area of half a postcard, taken at a range of down to around 25cm, with a...

Tamron SP AF10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical [IF] (B001)

The biggest advantage the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II Lens has over the other ultra-wide angle lenses is its price. The 10-24's USA price varies based on the amount of the rebate that, at review time, is typically available for it - but a $50-$100...

Pentax 16 - 45 / 4,0 ED AL

The most expensive of the Pentax lenses in this category 16-50mm did not always deliver everything that it promised. In particular, the f/2.8 aperture is more for bright viewing than it is for top-quality imaging. Similarly, the SDM system is indeed...

Sony 30 mm / F 2,8 DT SAM MACRO

The Sony 30mm f/2.8 DT macro ( SAL-30F28 ) shines in many aspects. Like most dedicated macro lenses it is extremely sharp straight from f/2.8 till about f/11 and even f/16 can be considered as a mainstream setting. Lateral CAs are absolutely negligible...

Sigma 4.5mm F2.8 EX DC HSM Circular Fisheye

When, at the end of the previous year, Sigma announced the launch of two new „fisheye” type lenses, designed for use with small APS-C/DX sensors, I was pleased on the one hand and a bit apprehensive on the other.

Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM

Great lens for general photography, not just portraits. Very sharp, a little noisy on widest apertures though.. would recommend f/2.0 and above. But great for low light outdoor photography when combo'd with my 6D, the only lens I have for it right now....
