Hama Digital HR UV Filter 55mm

Great value & good quality. I have fitted it to my Lumix FZ28 just to protect the lens. I took some test shots both exactly the same settings/subject & I can't see any loss of picture quality with this cheap filter fitted. For a compact camera it's...

Print File Archival Workbox, 3 Ring Binder Box with a Carry Handle, 2-1/2"...

I just got this and it was the quality I expected....basic. The plastic is firm but I would not stand on it. The plastic clips and handle are of adequate quality. My key gripe is the rings on the binder do not press together firm enough when closed....

Konica Minolta (S2394365)

Meh. I expected better build quality. My 14mm Samyang feels way sturdier. Only plus when compared to the Samyang is: the lens takes filters easily.

Had a little problem with Royal Mail but a very nice person called Angelina at the company I bought from sorted it all out for me and went beyond the call of duty :) Thank You Angelina once again. Having tried out the set of filters once again they...

Sony 75-300mm F4.5-5.6

A better short lens than a long one, with low resolution and fringing at the 300mm end

Exceptionally Quiet Philips FC6091 Anti Allergy Portable Rechargeable Mini...

If you're thinking about buying this, don't. It's not as loud as an airplane, say, but it's not "quiet". And its vents are designed so that they blow just to the right and to the left of what you are trying to vacuum, so that if you want to, say, move...

Canon LA DC52F - Lens adapter

Amazon said that I needed this adapter when I ordered the macro lens and tele lens for my Canon 510 but those came with an adapter, so this was a waste of money.

Opteka 85mm f/1.4 Medium Telephoto Portrait Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Just got this lens. It takes beautiful photos....if you can get it to focus. Construction: Nice solid build. A bit heavey. ALL MANUAL. The Body does not speak to the lens. The apeture is set by the ring on the lens. This also means that you have less...

Olympus 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom

The lens came as a kit with the Olympus 330, together with the 40-150mm/f3.5-4.5 zoom. Unlike the telezoom, I find this lens quite disappointing -- I just expect better quality than 'sufficient' from an Olympus lens. Barrel distortion is on the high...

Canon PowerShot G5 G3 Professional HD² Digital Accessory Kit

This bundle is really great. It comes with everything you need to make your first step up towards a photographer, before buying a DSLR. The only thing that might bother some people (I dont mind it) is the the zoom lens leaves dark corners on the...

Nikon FC E9 - Converter

Excellent fisheye lens. Bought some sigma fisheye for another Canon Camera and didn't work as good as this one. Perfect choice good quality and awsome price.

Sony VCL-HG0737X

I bought this lens in preparation for purchasing either the DCR-SR300 or the new HDR-SR7 since both have only a 10X mag. I tried it on the DCR-SR200 and the new Hdr-SR5. It worked well with each and I probably will end up getting the SR7. The lens...

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F2.8

With the advent of more professionally orientated Micro Four Thirds camera bodies, it makes sense that Panasonic would want to release a weather-sealed professional spec f/2.8 zoom. The price at around £999, is typical of these kinds of lenses.

Pentax 18-35mm f/4-5.6 AL SMC P-FA J

This lens is truly spectacular! I read the first review and I think the author has some f/b focus issues on his K10, the lens hasn't any distortion or vignetting, either wide open. Is light and fast and accurate on focussing. Photos taken with this...

Sigma 30 mm / F 2,8 EX DN

The Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM is a fast normal angle lens for APS-C cameras, but suffers from a lack of sharpness and a good amount of barrel distortion.

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.

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

The Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS kit lens is a solidly performing medium-zoom lens, with good optics and image stabilization, that will appeal to more than just the entry-level crowd.

It's hard not to fall for the E-P1's charms. The unashamedly nostalgic design combines with true SLR quality in a remarkably pocketable package. The lack of flash and viewfinder will put some off, as will the relatively slow focus, but overall this...

Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D

Anyone reading this review shortly after that of the Canon EF 50mm F.4 USM will surely be experiencing an uncanny sense of deja vu; the two lenses' characteristics and performance are remarkably similar, as we might expect from designs of similar...
