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...

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II

I bought this lens specifically for wildlife pictures while travelling in South Africa. However I have found it to be useful for other tasks as well. Of course it is a bright light lens being slow but its small and light enough for handholding. My wife...

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.

Pentax smc D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro

Pentax already has a 100mm macro option in its range - the Pentax smc D FA 100mm f/2.8 Macro - but this newer version has the advantage of weather resistance. This combines six separate seals to keep out moisture, together with a Super Protect coating...

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....

Sigma 824110 1.4x DG EX APO Teleconverter for Sigma SLR Cameras

I bought the Sigma 1.4 teleconverter to use with my Sigma 70-200 / F2.8 lens. The Sigma telecoverter has worked very well so far. The 70-200 / F2.8 lens is converted to approximately 100-280 / F3.9 with the teleconverter which helps with the long shots...

Opteka HD² 0.20X Professional Super AF Fisheye Lens for Nikon D40, D40x...

This lens screws onto the end of an existing lens and only supports a few lens sizes. Make sure you have a lens that is compatible in the first place. The actual useable, non-blurred area of this lens is extremely small. You may have a very large...

I am embarrassed to admit that I bought these. This is an expensive set of yellow polycarbonate glasses. The impact to visibility is minimal, given the mild tinting. To get outdoor contrast enhancement, the yellow needs to be much stronger/profound....

Sigma 55 - 200 / 4,0 - 5,6 DC

WARNING if you have a low end entry level DSLR then you will probably want to buy this. This camera lens does not have a motor in it and if your camera does not have a motor in it, it will not autofocus. Wish I would have known before my purchase, or I...

Tamron AF18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD

Conclusion While this lens won't necessarily appeal to professionals or serious amateurs because of its smaller apertures and superzoom tag, it's an ideal purchase for someone who is just getting started with a dSLR and who is looking for the...

Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 AF DI-II LD Lens Pro Kit f/ Nikon w/ Built-in motor

The NEX 7 I have not seen before, but apart from one and a half little niggles, I am in love with this little beastie; it takes fantastic shots. And the niggle and a bit? The viewfinder as it brings up my left eye dominant issue is the big one. The...

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR ($499.95) is the company's replacement for its older AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR zoom. It's priced a bit higher, but covers a longer zoom range. Our tests showed the older lens to be...

Colored Film Gels - Set of Six Colors 8x10 inch sheets

Cute idea but didn't read the fine print to realize these weren't framed. At the price I think they are an absolute rip-off considering it is just 6 pieces of cardboard squares with pictures on them.

Hoya Pol circular HMC 72

As at least one other reviewer has written the surface coating scratches easily. I take this hiking and backpacking, and I am VERY cautious with my equipment, but stuff happens. Scratching the filter is my fault but the thing is $82, I'd expect more...

Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.0-5.6

Priced at Rs.43,950, the Nikon 1 V3 comes with a 10-30mm lens and an 8GB memory card. The performance of the camera is not exceptional but the speed at which it can shoot pictures will leave you spellbound. An alternative to the 1 V3 is the Sony RX100...
