A great lens for the buck. Good build quality. Pretty sharp. Quick focus.

Canon Wide Angle TS-E Lens

This is the absolute coolest lens that Canon makes, though you'll very rarely see people using it. Why? It's expensive, it's too wide, it's manual focus only, it's a prime lens, and it's heavy. However, many of those things are actually bonuses, as...

Sony 0.6X Wide Angle Lens

This really helps you to acheive wide angle where the built in Autofocus lenses can't. The only thing is there is considerable curve distortion up close. From far away you won't notice it as much. This is a characteristic of many wide angle lenses...

Sony VF-R25NK

It is very difficult to get a 25 mm filter in the retail stores in US and the best I could get was a 27mm-25mm converter with the filter. When attached, the converter makes the filter protrude out a lot and luckily, I found this set of filters on...

Olympus WCON-08B 0.8X Wide Extension Lens for E-10

I bought this lens for a Nikon D50 SLR using a 19-35mm Tokina lens. I'd seen an on-line test using exactly the same combination so I thought I was getting a bargain---15mm on the wide end. The lens works, but in several of my pictures, pretty much any...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Conclusions The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a solid zoom lens. It delivers crisper images than the 18-55mm that ships with many entry-level Rebel cameras, and more than doubles its zoom range. Its focus motor is more powerful than the...

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (5.8x)

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a good alternative to an 18-55mm kit lens; it's sharp throughout its zoom range, and affordable.

Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM

The lens like all ikon lenses is made very well. Snaps onto my 5500 easily and gives me great pictures.

Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D

While I hope to create a full Nikon 35mm f/2D AF Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for...

Samyang 85 mm / F 1,4 ASP IF AE

Image Quality and Conclusions I used Imatest to see how sharp the lens is when paired with the 36-megapixel Nikon D810 . At f/1.4 it scores 1,957 lines per picture height on a center-weighted sharpness test. That's better than the 1,800 lines that we...

Nikon 10,5 / 2,8 DX G ED

Conclusions It's not often that I think of a lens as especially fun to use—photography is an enjoyable hobby, but it's more about the experience than the tool used to get a shot. I'd say that the Nikon AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED is an...

Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F2.8

With long optics it is very prone to camera shake. Even at 1000th of a second you will see ghosting if you shoot at 3 ft away from a subject for macro. Great portraits though. Also got to look out that the camera will not be able to judge the iso...

Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R Lens - Black

The 40-150mm is a good telephoto lens for interchangeable lens cameras that is incredibly lightweight and pretty sharp. Its build quality is not as refined as we would like, though the plastic construction isn't surprising given the budget price.

Hama UV Filter 390 (O-Haze), 77 mm

I've got a couple of these now for my L series lenses as they a meant to be pretty good and hopefuly will not spoil the good work that the lens is doing. I haven't tried any others to compare but this seems good.

Sony SAL-75300

Olympus 9 mm / F 8,0 FISHEYE

Conclusions The Olympus Fisheye Body Cap Lens 9mm isn't an optical marvel. If you want a fish-eye with top-notch image quality, you need to spend more on the Olympus 8mm f1.8 PRO lens or the Panasonic 8mm F3.5. But for photographers who simply want to...

Panasonic 12

The Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH. is the company's take on a pro-level standard zoom, but softness at the edges and a high asking price hold it back.

Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8

The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 is a tiny prime lens for Fuji X cameras. It's very sharp in the center, but edge performance isn't the greatest.

Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD for Nikon AF

The difference between a “constant” aperture zoom and other standard zooms is that when you increase the focal length on the standard zoom the maximum aperture narrows. This might make the difference between being able to hand hold or not when zooming...

Pentax 15 mm / F 4,0 HD/DA/ED/AL LIMITED

Conclusions If you're a wide-angle shooter, the Pentax HD DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited is the smallest, lightest lens you can get for your APS-C Pentax SLR system. It's not the widest; there's an older 14mm f/2.8 prime, but it's downright huge in...
