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

The Sony 75-300mm is a very useful addition to the standard DT 18-70mm kit lens, greatly extending the available range to include powerful telephoto facilities. This makes it ideal for portraits, sports and wildlife photography, or simply getting...

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...

Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM (C)

So far the Sigma company has been the last to present a lens with focal length ranging from 16-18 mm to 300 mm. They were slower than Nikon, with their two 18-300 mm models, and Tamron, with the 16-300 mm instrument. Still Sigma has proven time and...

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.

Pentax DA 12-24mm f/4 ED AL (IF) Lens for Pentax and Samsung Digital SLR's

It seems well built and has some nice touches, such as manual focus override in AF mode, but it's over-priced

Pentax 50 / 2,8 SMC D-FA

The Pentax 50mm f/2.8 SMC D FA Macro is lightweight lens that transforms into a 75mm f/2.8 in traditional film terms.

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...

Panasonic LUMIX G FISHEYE 8mm / F3.5 Lens (H-F008)

The Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm F3.5 captures everything in front of your camera in a unique curved perspective, but it's a love-it or hate-it lens.

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...

Hitachi VM-D965LE

The telephoto and wide angle lens work to an extent, but the camera often refuses to focus properly when one of them is attached and often shots of the horizon have a reverse curve in them.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II

Sigma 30 mm / F 2,8 EX DN

You can get some very sharp photos with this lens, even wide open. Its small size and light weight make it an excellent prime lens for my Sony Nex cameras, and its 2.8 maximum aperture, though not super-fast, is plenty fast enough for most situations....

Hama Skylight Filter 1 A (LA+10), 52.0 mm, HTMC coated

Not quite the quality I expected, in many cases adds blue color cast to photos. Not quite as effective at cutting light either.
