Preserve family vacations, special events and more with this Sigma 884110 digital lens, which is compatible with select Sigma digital cameras and features an HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) to enable high-speed, accurate autofocus with minimal noise.
In love...I love it...I didn't expect to receive such a nice bokeh effect from this lens, but after using it up close to take pictures of collectibles I noticed it and was pleasantly surprised....It is much, much quieter than the kit lens that comes with entry-level Canon cameras though, which is the camera most likely owned by the person wanting to use this lens for video.
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...good buy...This is an ideal lens for taking those "bokkeh" photos that characterize many artistic photographs -- that is, the object will be in sharp focus while backgrounds are heavily blurred....Since Best Buy informed me in "microscopic" print that signatures are required for delivery, I spent half the night chasing down the UPS guy to get my lens.....but so happy I did!
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...a must buy...Almost everyone said "A must to have lens..." & Indeed after using it for a month or so, I would repeat the same words, "A must to have lens..." What a crisp image this lens produce, highly satisfied with its result....I have used this lens outdoors without and with the lens hood, indoors for pics of my kids and family especially during these holidays, inside and outside of historical sites/museums we have visited - all with GREAT results.
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.
best lens...Good lens...As for the lighting it does require more light obviously but with the right settings not a lot of image graining occurs and you can still get the picture, use of a tripod is recommended but a steady hand could work....I will probably upgrade to a faster lens when I can afford one, but this is not bad and was a good deal bundled with the camera body and kit lens I purchased....Outside getting a combo lens (more money) this was excellent value included in the canon black Friday combo.
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.
Good deal...Great add...I'ven't been able to use the lens for the reason I bought it (my boys ball games), but I've played around with it snapping pics of them playing around outside and it's pretty awesome!...This one is fully compatible with my camera, and the image stabilization and auto focus work really well (a good thing, since the lens is a bit heavy for me for hand-held photography)
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.
Very cool...Good lens....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....I'm still learning as I go on photography but I love the additional zoom capability this lens provides and it doesn't hinder image quality whatsoever....I got this in a package bundle on black friday so it was relatively free.
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.
Loved it....Love it....I shot in the Blue Ridge Mountains and found the pictures to be great, especially for a someone who only photographs without any formal training doing this as fun....On top of all of that, this lens also includes the STM focus system which allows you to record video and have the lens focus almost completely silent.
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 view...Nice but...I shoot pics of my family almost exclusively and with kids its hard to get quick shots let alone crisp focus because they are always moving....I haven't tested this lens to video yet but considering how quiet and smooth the autofocus is, it would but phenomenal for wide angle videos.
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.
Great lens!...Great Lense...Recently while photographing the Pride Parade in SF, I used the IS setting that allows for panning/tracking with an EF Teleconvert III at f5.6 and was really excited about the results....This IS II version is the sharpest out of the 70-200 2.8 models by far, and the image stabilization allows me to hand hold the camera at much lower shutter speeds than before.
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.
Nice lens!...Great lens...I received some good advice from a friend regarding a fixed 50mm lens--the F/1.4 on a 50mm lens is what he told me to look for, and the pictures are fantastic (using a Canon EOS Rebel T3I)....It doesn't really sharpen up fully until f/2.8, but we don't buy this lens to shoot it at f/2.8 -- we buy it so we can shoot in really low light or to get maximum bokeh at f/1.4.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light without needing a flash. It's excellent for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Love it....Fast AF...I have captured some neat photos from across the field from where I live (live in country), the subject was quite a distance from my back door also....If you're trying to decide to pick between this and the 35mm f1.8, just know that the 35mm is more of an all-around lens and this one kind of compliments it.
Customize your Sony Alpha camera with this Sony prime lens for enhanced picture quality. OSS image stabilization reduces blurring for crisp, clear images, and the direct manual focus switches from autofocus to manual focus effortlessly. Boasting a 50mm focal length, this Sony prime lens lets you zero in on the perfect shot.
Not Bad...Nice lens!...I bought this lens because I used 35-135 which was not a digital lens and I could not be happier images are crisp and it is a good all around lens....Build construction is solid though it will add a reasonable amount of weight to the front of your camera (the lens weighs 1.08 lbs or about half a kilogram).
Cover every shot with this all-in-one Nikon 18-140mm camera lens that lets you zoom from wide-angle to telephoto without missing a beat. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass creates amazing contrast, and the zoom enables crisp images as close as 1.48 feet away. This Nikon 18-140mm camera lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for super quiet clicks.
Great lens...Great buy...I've never used a camera like this until buying my new Sony NEX and this lens can zoom in from so far away and still give you amazing quality pictures!...I have not gotten a chance to play with this a lot yet, but I am excited about the zoom options it will give me as the zoom on the NEX-6 itself does not zoom very far.
With Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, this Sony NEX SEL55210 lens makes it easy to take clear, steady photos and videos with your Sony NEX digital camera. The 3.8x zoom lets you hone in on distant subjects from far away.
Best lens...Great Lens!...The lens is fast enough for many low light situations, the image quality is excellent edge to edge, at least with a sensor crop camera....BB doesn't have a great customer service dept compared to some much smaller companies, and I feel that I just got lucky on my 3rd try getting a knowledgeable rep that can make a decision on replacing my lens.
Canon EF 24–70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens: Built to handle the demands of professional use, this lens is durable as well as dust- and water-resistant. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear surfaces keep smudges and fingerprints to a minimum.
