Would highly recommend....Very good lens....This lens is ideal for just about anything, from portraits, to sports, to weddings, to zoo wildlife, to photojournalism....This is an amazing lens that gives you fantastic pictures....Provides excellent pictures and is not crazy heavy/large like the 2.8....So I have tried a fair variety 70-200 lenses so far, such as the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 VC DI USD, Canon 70-200 f4 USM, Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS USM.
Canon EF 70–200mm f/4L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens: If landscapes are your main focus, this lens has what you need to create photos of distant scenes and captivating compressed perspectives. It's also useful for portraits and outdoor sports photography. Whether you're a professional photographer or a serious amateur, this versatile lens will be a valuable addition to your kit.
Fast and clean pics on Nikon D600...fast and fun...Great lens for shooting weddings & portratis....WORKS GREAT FOR NIGHT FOOTBALL GAMES, AND INDOOR VOLLEYBALL...Gives wonderful color and bokeh at f - 2.8....It is a substantial upgrade from my variable aperture zoom lens.
Capture stunning images with this Sigma 589306 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX telephoto zoom lens that is compatible with most Nikon full-frame DSLR cameras and features an HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) that delivers fast, quiet autofocus to ensure crisp photos.
Loving it!...good lens....After using a heavy 70m-200m lense this is a piece of cake...Wish I would have had this lense earlier this fall....can not wait to use for landscapes.......Usually I am torn between getting a lens that is meant for full frame and does not have the combination of proper field of view, aperture, and price, but this lens is a great addition to Canon's lineup that rewards crop sensor owners....I was using my 50mm as a walk around lens, but with an APS-C camera, that really turns the focal length into an 80mm making it so walking around and getting wide angle shots could be challening.
Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges. The circular, 7-blade aperture delivers soft backgrounds.
Worth it!...Great Buy....Took to beach on first day to just try it out...was happy when I got home to see what it could do....a very nice compliment to the 18-55 kit that came with my a3000....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...One great thing about this lens is that it's compatible with the NEX and Alpha lines...you can also use with the E-Mount's but need an attachment.
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.
Nice zoom...Great add...I do not know what to compare it to since I am new in the DSLR world, but it has a great zooming and the pictures come out really clear and crisp....We just took a trip to the mountains and were able to get some great shots of the city below because of this lens... We love it !!!...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.
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 Lense...I like....I use it for portrait and wedding shoots....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....Sadly, I was recently spoiled by renting a f/2.8 70-200mm Canon, and words cannot describe the difference between an f/2.8 and an f/4, particularly in low light (gymnasium) settings....You probably would not expect a telephoto zoom lens to be capable of taking beautiful landscape shots but at 70 mm and a f32 aperture this lens performs amazingly well.
Canon EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens: If you're looking for a lens that gets you close to the action, this versatile telephoto zoom lens provides a longer reach for sports, weddings and events, nature photography and more. It's equipped with an image stabilizer, so you can create sharp photos and video while using slower shutter speeds. And when you're not shooting, the zoom lock button lets you keep the lens securely fixed in place.
Clear lens...Best lens....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....This classic lens has a fast maximum aperture that is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur....Offers a nice "Standard" view of your scene, nice fast aperature at wide open (f1.8) and closes all the way down to f/22 (depending on the body and the amount of light, among other things).
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: A perfect everyday lens for any photographer, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G offers fast autofocusing combined with an integrated lens coating to deliver clear and crisp images. The wide-open aperture is ideal for low-light shooting and creating images with beautiful background blur.
Nice Lens....Supurb lens...Awesome lense for weddings....Dont let anyone tell you that the L series lenses are not worth the extra money or theres no difference to them because there lying.This lens shoots such crisp images and focuses so fast, its awesome for sports which I have used for baseball pictures and to see the dirt particles from a player sliding into a base is just incredible.It also shoots super in low light condition and when paired with the 1.4 extender,youve got quite a lens....While this is heavier and more expensive than any of Canon's other 70-200mm lenses, if you are a serious shooter in need of this focal length, this lens is worth it's weight in gold....This lens was my dream one , it is expensive but I love it , it give real good quality , however in low light it is risky for blurring the whole photo
Canon EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens This telephoto zoom lens is an essential tool for professional photographers and skilled amateurs. The variable focal length makes it useful for photographing a broad range of subjects, and the 2.8 maximum aperture functions well in low-light situations. Snap candid portraits, stop the action at sporting events or compose wedding photos with exceptional blurred backgrounds.
Best one...I LOVE THIS...Those are nice but, for example, when shooting a wedding or something when you may want to change from close-up to further shots, it becomes a pain in the butt to change lenses (and to store them somewhere safe.) In the long run, BUY THIS LENS....This lens quickly drops to the 5.6 f stop setting when you start to zoom and in a gymnasium, theater or foot ball field you will quickly feel the pinch of not enough light to maintain a reasonably fast shutter speed so the action does not get blurred....The close range pictures are great plus the lens offers a pretty big zoom and comes with the benefit of being able to do depth of feild effects with focus blurring for artistic pictures....Of coarse you can go out and spend another $1000 on better lenses, but for those of us who are not making an income with this hobby, this is a terrific lens.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–200mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR II Standard Zoom Lens: This powerful and versatile Nikon standard zoom lens is a great one-lens solution for DX-format DSLRs. Its wide angle to telephoto focal range gives photographers a flexible tool to get the shot without having to switch lenses.
Very nice...Love it!!...So yes CA is annoying and this lens does have an issue with this in a lot of situations and I removed a star solely because of this, but it also does a lot right and for the price literally, cannot be beat....Then, I realized it is great if you are taking a portrait outside in open space (blurs background so nicely), but not useful when you want to take portrait in indoor... For casual dinner event, you will find yourself right against the wall to take an ordinary portrait shot....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.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: Whether you're a beginner or professional, you'll love this compact, lightweight lens from Nikon. The normal angle of view captures approximately what the human eye sees, making it a great all-around lens. Plus, the f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for creating softly blurred backgrounds and shooting in low light.
Great lens...nice lens....It has the Vibration reduction, which is great when taking hand held shots, but you definitely need to turn it off when you are taking photos on a Tripod....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....I was able to get some excellent shots of my son at his high school graduation without a tripod with this VR lens and they came out extremely sharp.
Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70–300mm f/4.5–5.6G IF-ED Telephoto Zoom Lens: Leave the tripod at home and create stunning still images and HD videos from any distance with this Nikon telephoto zoom lens. The versatile focal length allows you to capture intricately detailed photos of sports events, wildlife and distant scenery. Vibration reduction technology reduces blur caused by camera shake for crystal clear handheld photos and action shots.
Good lens....Love it...I shot at a wedding and it worked great for close ups....The 17-55 mm that comes with it is good, but for the longer shots ( like those taken at sporting events, or beaches for example) you need something like this....If you already have the 55-200, I would not get this one also but if you are looking to expand from your kit 18-55mm it is nice to have the extra focal length if you are looking for a zoom lens already....Because it does have a great zoom length, you may want to think about getting a tripod for the shooting subjects that are real far away (such as the moon).
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55–300mm f/4.5–5.6G ED VR Telephoto Zoom Lens: Be ready for almost any shot with this Nikon telephoto zoom lens. Lightweight and versatile, this lens captures crisp images even from a distance, allowing you to take sports photos from the bleachers and extend your reach for landscape and wildlife photography. Vibration reduction technology smooths out images for blur-free panning and still photography.
Love it....Fun Lens....It's great for taking portrait shots or shots of nature, with this I learned the meaning of "focus with your feet" as in because it's 50mm you can not adjust the lens so you must move your camera forward or backwards in order to get the subject in good focus....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....I would recommend getting this lens over more expensive models if you travel a lot and really need to optimize your space or there is a possibility of damage, you need a quick lens that will not weigh you down, or you really want to break into the portrait scene.
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.
Nice lens!...Great zoom...Wonderful for Weddings!...It's good for people who use tripods mainly using lenses such as these but if you are hand held most of the time and active, probably not the best choice....quick and easy to attach, love the way it takes pictures from a distance and the look like you are right at the object you are taking pictures of....TLDR: It will work great if you do not mind using a tripod, but if you are looking for more portability, get one with an automatic image stabilizer.
Canon EF 75–300mm f/4–5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens: An ideal lens for photography enthusiasts who want to take their creativity to the next level, this telephoto zoom lens provides a long focal reach for taking close-ups shots from a distance. Take action shots while sitting on the sidelines at games and events, photograph wildlife without getting too close and capture incredible details on your next vacation.
Great buy!...Fun Lens!...Other than the 10-22mm variant of this lens, which is far too expensive, this is one to go for, other than the vignetting (easily fixed in Lightroom) great detail and sharpness for your DSLR, currently I am using a Canon EOS 80D and a T6i which work well with this lens, GO BUY NOW!...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....Closer to 10 mm gives the characteristic distortion wide angle lens are known to have and then 18 mm is the same as any basic 18-55 mm lens which is not distorted.
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.
