Great long distance bird lens....Simply fantastic prime lens...Great lens...The autofocus is fast and the additional stabilization control is very useful....A real good serious big telephoto.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS Pro Telephoto Lens: This lens lets you take close-up shots from a distance with detailed clarity. Ideal for shooting action shots from the sidelines or capturing nature without startling the wildlife.
Good one....Great lens...And surprise Strohm a magnification this little legs does on the new Sony camera meet my Canon lenses , Would highly recommend this to any new Sony camera that uses the E lenses...I bought the sony alpha a6000 camera a few months before buying the lens and realized that the lens it came with did not have much of a zoom on it....I had fun playing with it on a recent trip and got some amazing photos with crisp detail in the front and the beautiful blur in the background.
Designed for use with most Sony Alpha E-mount cameras, this Sony SEL55210/B telephoto lens features Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, so you can capture images in crisp detail. The 2 ED (extra-low dispersion) elements help ensure color accuracy.
Great buy...Great Len....But over all I like this lens for a starter lens, but would recommend the combination lens over this one, if you have a choice and the money,but as I said this one came with the bundle....The image quality is good but is certainly not going to rival a high-end lens like the Canon 70-200 L. I am please with this lens....I prefer this lens compared to the 70-300 because this lens has stabilization built in and because its a telephoto, you do not have to get really close to the subject and still get AMAZING quality.
Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.
Great zoom!...Thank you....I already had 18-140 mm and this addition is awesome and I can clearly see a huge difference in the telephoto feature with 70-300, perfect for wildlife photography....As an added benefit this lens was designed for a full frame camera, so in the future if I decide to step up to such a camera, I can still use the lens....The results so far have been great, the lense has the right amount of range and the 300mm max zoom really gives us the results that we are looking for as far as close ups.

Worth it!...Best lens....The # 1 comment I have received when people look at the photos is "I can not believe how close you were to the animals" - now I am brave but not that brave!!...I am very pleased with the ease of use (it does not require me to know anything more or operate the camera any differently than the standard lens) and the image quality has been great in the limited opportunities I have had to use it to date....I picked this lens up to fill a gap until I replace my 2.8f lens, and was pleased with the quality of shots and the amount of light it picks up at night on a baseball field.

Nice lens...Good zoom....I have gone to a few events(airshows, sporting events) and this was the main lens I used, I found that the image quality was decent, but when I zoomed into the picture on my computer, the edges of the subject were colored blue, purple, green, or yellow 80% of the time....Use the auto focus when you do not want to adjust it yourself, other than that go wild with the other features the camera has to help you take great pictures....upon purchasing this lens, I forgot to make sure it had image stabilization (which upon further research is a much much more expensive option) so ended up using my 55-250mm kit lens more often.

nice lense...Is good....A prime is always a good way to go, but the telephoto capabilities were important for many of my close-up and extreme close-up shots required for a few scenes....This zoom lens is a must have to carry along with for some great snaps or as I like to say, if you are going to be out and about with a little comotion going on whatever that may be, and you do not want to be bothered swapping out lenses, yes, hook this one up and you will be good to go for the event!!...The build is very solid, but the weight will certainly not go unnoticed if you are comparing to the plastic lenses that generally come with SLR kits.

Love it ....Best bang!...Although it's sharp, remaining so for the most part until it's wide open, it has some distortion and is not as rectalinear - meaning straight lines appear straight - as I'd like, which is to be expected at this price point, and can be corrected in software....But I keep this lens on my camera at all times indoors so I can finally catch those shots of the kids running around being adorable or doing something goofy and not have to worry about flash or overexposed pictures or out of focus pictures because the kit lens was not able to keep up or was not open wide enough to take a good shot....I found 35mm to be adequate, but of course, people are used to having zoom lens and around 28mm type lens when you are taking pictures of your friends and family... You still find yourself moving few steps backwards when you are about to take portrait shots.

Great lens...Good item...I researched camera lenses for my wife (a real estate agent) to take pictures of interior rooms and a wide angled lense was recommended as a must for agents....It's not as large an aperture as I'd like and I am not that fond of plastic mounts, but it's hard to argue with a wide-angle lens on an APSC for that price....For the price this is a good lens; although I find that the edges of the picture tend to be a little darker than it would be with the regular lens, but it is an easy fix with some editing.
With an STM (stepping motor) and focus mechanism, this Canon EF-S 9519B002 zoom lens allows you to record ultrasharp videos or capture crisp photos using your compatible Canon camera. The UD lens element helps you take highly realistic images.
Nice Lens....Highly recommend this lens....Highly recommend this lens....I am also happy with photo quality....When I got it and used it I saw that it was perfect for my needs.

Love it....New Fave...50mm is a good focal length for portraits though, and this lens can focus on something as close as a foot away from the camera so you can get some good closeups....the lens is nice but takes much better outdoor then indoor shots which is a little upsetting since I bought it for my indoor shots but overall it seems to be a good lens just not as awesome I had heard it was....I am definitely more of a dedicated hobbyist than a pro shooter, but I have been thrilled with the performance of this lens so far and impressed with the photo quality and functionality overall!
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
Love it....Good one...Ask any SLR shooter, a nifty fifty prime lens has always been in their arsenal from the time they moved up from a kodak (or a smartphone)! Some plastic in this one but it has not let me down....Not much new to say, that others have not already, but itt creates excellent bokeh, Perfect as an everyday lens for landscapes, portraits, dim environments, astrophotography etc....The only reason to jump to another 50 mm lens is the two f/1.4's give you 2/3 of a stop more light, as otherwise the f/1.4G is slower to focus and not as sharp until you stop it down, and when shooting wide open is subject to sagittal coma flare, and the f/1.4D's optical formula is from the 1970's and also needs to be stopped down.
