Olympus Zuiko ED 18-180mm f/3.5-6.3

Zoom lenses with a ratio of 10:1 or greater have become known as Superzooms and to some are the Holy Grail of interchangeable lenses. The reality is that they need a number of compromises to achieve their range and make a ‘Jack of all Trades' rather...

Nikon AF-S 200-400mm f/4 G ED VR

This top end lens from Nikon is another that looks like it requires a pilot's licence to operate it! Bristling with knobs, buttons and switches, it takes a long study just to see them all. But are they of any use? We take a look.

Sigma 55-200 f/4-5.6 DC

As a popular focal length range for purchase as a second lens on cropped sensors, and often offered in twin lens kits, this lens, starts at the point where most standard kit lenses finish and goes out to a good medium telephoto length. We take a look...

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Lens

Distortion ranges from mild barrel at 18mm to near distortion free at 35mm to slight pincushion distortion at 50mm. Colors seem fine - neutral. Some people think this lens produces warm/yellow results, but I am not noticing this. The 7-blade aperture...

Konica Minolta AF Macro 50mm f/2.8 (D)

Minolta, or Konica Minolta as they are now, have a long standing reputation for the quality of their lenses and for the most part this example does not disappoint. Build quality is good and the lens handled well with the exception of the autofocus....

Nikon AF-S 12-24mm f/4 DX G ED

Nikon were the first to produce a dedicated ultra wide angle lens for their cropped sensor cameras and they obviously put all their experience of both SLR lenses and wide angle for smaller sensor (Coolpix) lenses to full use. Despite some more recent...

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

Despite its drawbacks, this is still quite a usable budget telephoto lens. It does not carry much of a weight penalty, and therefore has more chance of being in the bag when you want the extra reach that it offers. In its class, its biggest drawbacks...

Nikon Micro-Nikkor 200mm/4 IF

This lens is the longest focal length in Nikon's line-up of Macro lenses. Nikon call them Micro, but they do the same job as everybody else's Macro lenses and that is to produce images that are a 1:1 ratio on the film or sensor. Not only is it Nikon's...

This lens is Nikon's version in the professionally specified and very popular 70-200 range. It incorporates Nikon's own variety of stabilisation, in this case called VR (Vibration Reduction) and, as with other stabilised lenses, there are two modes....

Cosina 100mm f/3.5 Macro

This lens provides fairly good optical performance at a very low price. If you really cannot afford the price of a more reputable lens, and you can cope with the Kinder Surprise build quality and slow autofocus, then this lens will do the job. However...
