Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6

love this lens, you can capture subjects that are quite far off. Very light weight, excellent quality, fair price, found it for much higher prices elsewhere.

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.

Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L EF IS USM Lens

The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L IS is an impressive piece of engineering. However, its immense zoom range doesn't come without compromises - especially on a high resolution full format DSLR. The resolution figures are actually pretty good in the...

Tiffen Filter 82 mm

When they say 77mm they mean 77mm! Fits perfectly on my Nikon 10-24mm lens. Just using for protection of the expensive lens. The prior filter did its job and took its punishment well. This is a replacement.

Tiffen Filter 67 mm

As the name implies "Essential Kit" it is essential for anyone that invests in an expensive digital SLR camera. It comes with 3 Tiffen filters and a case. I shoot most of my pictures outdoors and a good circular polarizer filter is essential general...

Sigma 18

The Sigma 18-250mm F3.6-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM is one of the best of the current bunch of SLR superzooms, with decent optics, fast autofocus and effective image stabilization. It's a reliable performer, and its close-up capability is handy too.

Tiffen Filter 46 mm

Amazing background tones with colorful skies and detailed cloud contrast even at high noon. Immediate reaction from people. Extremely convenient design allows to keep it on lens indefinitely.

Canon EF telezoomobjektiv - 70 mm - 300 mm

The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM ($1,399) is quite compact when you consider its zoom range and compatibility with full-frame cameras. Its DO designation refers to a design that incorporates diffractive optics, which helps keep the size down,...

Love it! These allow me to be more creative in my photos and the price was not bad at all! I bought a few different ratings and sizes for my other lenses.

Filter - Special Effect Filter (62 mm Attachment)

The effect from this filter is not very noticable. at all.. from the preview images and reviews I was expecting something along the lines of an Instagram filter, where things really change. But Alas, it is nothing like that and post processing will...

Tiffen 55mm Digital HT #812 Warming Glass Filter

I'm really enjoying this filter! I wanted a lensbaby but couldn't afford it quite yet and ended up buying this one. Works very well! Doesn't have an extreme blurring effect around the edges, but layering 2 probably would. I was taught that a good...

Tiffen 52mm Hot Mirror Filter

This filter does not work like a lineal polarizer, it is more like a circular polarizer. I compared this product with my Sunpak circular polarizer in front of my laptop screen and the Sunpak turned completely black the screen, and the Tiffen "lineal"...

Sigma 18 - 200 / 3,5 - 6,3 DC /ASP./IF

I bought this for my Pentax K-30, and one of the factors leaning me towards this lens was the OS or optical stabilizer. When I received the lens it turned out that the manual says "The optical stabilizer is a feature not supported for Pentax cameras"...

Nikon AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED (3.2x)

Tiffen 49mm Circular Polarizer

I can't tell you if the lens cover is good or not. I have to return this item. This is more of a review on Amazon's distribution center in North Las Vegas. Horrible job. Received the item today. My order was two polarized lens covers, a camera lens,...

Tiffen 43CP 43CP 43mm Circular Polarizing Filter (Gray)

Filter looks fine, however the Canon lens cap for the camcorder did not fit very well on the filter, so I will have to get another lens cap.

Tiffen 72mm Neutral Density 0.9 Filter

Tiffen is comparable in quality with any brand, including Canon when it comes to a normal skylight filter. Particularly reasonable in value and a good protective cover for either a camera or camcorder lens.
