Sigma (S2854589)

Original 18-50 kit was not satisfying because I needed take some outdoor shots for my son's soccer games. And I didn't want to carry several lenses for each situation and spend a fortune on them too. So I did some research for replacement lenses that...

Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab Type 2 (12 Pack)

Researched 2 other vendors with sensor swabs. This was definately the best purchase i've made since purchasing a DSLR. If you're looking for a sensor swab to clean your expensive DSLR, look no further. Best sensor swab for the money!

This Lens with the 30mm Fisheye PE & 50mm PE are the only lenses I own for Landscape Photography in Panoramic Format with the Bronica 135mm W Panoramic Backs. Between the 3 Lenses, this one is my favorite due to it's size & perspective or angle of...

Sekonic L-308B II Flashmate Meter #401-308

This is a great little light meter. First of all, it's incident - and that beats any amount of fancy reflected metering in the camera hands down. Second, it does flash metering - if you only ever do TTL flash work then you don't need it...but when...

Nikon HB-7 Lens Hood (Bayonet) for 80-200mm f/2.8 ED D-AF Lens

I bought this at B&H for $29.99. It mounts on my 80-200 f2.8D perfectly & securely. Matches the lens nicely cosmetically. It takes up a lot of space in my camera bag, but what can you do, the lens is big. Reduces flare greatly. I highly recommend it.

Tamron SP AF10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical [IF] (B001)

The biggest advantage the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II Lens has over the other ultra-wide angle lenses is its price. The 10-24's USA price varies based on the amount of the rebate that, at review time, is typically available for it - but a $50-$100...

Olympus Zuiko Digital EZ-1818 18-180 mm f3.5-6.3. Zoomobjektiv

We bought this in preparation for a long trip, to avoid carrying multiple lenses. For this purpose it was excellent; however, we did find the camera hunted for focus rather more than with the stock lenses, and the photos are perhaps a touch softer....

Sigma 4.5mm F2.8 EX DC HSM Circular Fisheye

When, at the end of the previous year, Sigma announced the launch of two new „fisheye” type lenses, designed for use with small APS-C/DX sensors, I was pleased on the one hand and a bit apprehensive on the other.
