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

Price is obviously the major consideration when considering a lens in this category, and with exceptional results for image quality, it's not just about the money when considering the Tamron 70-200mm ƒ/2.8. Sharpness results meet and even exceed those...

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR isn't an optically perfect, wide-aperture lens that doubles as a workhorse for pros and a dream lens for enthusiasts. But it is a pretty decent zoom for those times when you've got enough light to feed...

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.

Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG ASPHERICAL /HSM NIKON

While it's not the sharpest lens in the bag, the Sigma 12-24mm showed fairly decent results for sharpness. For optimal performance the lens must be stopped-down significant, to at least ƒ/8 or ƒ/11.

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...

Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS

The Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS is a crisp, all-weather telezoom. It offers a solid range, balances well with both APS-C and full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras, and delivers crisp results throughout its zoom range. $1,200 is on the pricey side, but...

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...

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.

First things first; the AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO undoubtedly represents an impressive feat of optical engineering, and Tamron has to be applauded for producing a superzoom that has significantly longer telephoto reach...

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.
