Love it ....Great Buy...Probably the fastest lens I'll ever own....But I can get clear, concise pictures of 12mm round glass chips with paintings underneath- so for this NOT being a macro lens I really don't know how much better an actual macro lens could possibly be.
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.
strong lens...I love it...There are lenses that focus faster but not anywhere near this price....Last thing I dislike is I could not get it to focus to infinity, works fine in the day time but I was trying to get a night shop with the stars and couldnt get anything but round bubbles

Add a 49mm filter to your Sony 50mm lens for lens protection and polarization effects.
Nice lens...Love it....It's half a stop slower but it's sharper and half the price....It's been especially great for video - a more recent hobby of mine - but absolutely perfect for the low-light environments in which I tend to shoot for nighttime events, parties.

I loved it....Love it!...It is lighter, faster, and better optics....I've been saving my money to get this lens to go with my 70-200,this lens completes my kit,photos come out so crisp nice bokeh nice color to,happy.
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.
Awesome Lens...Great lens...In comparison to the kit kens, (f3.5) the f1.8 allows for more light reaching the sensor thus enabling faster speeds in low light, making it an ideal indoor lens without a flash....I have the standard lense that came with my Sony a6300 and bought a pretty nice zoom lense, and this prime lense should round out what I need to make my amateur photo and video jobs look more professional

Good lens...Great Buy...Light weight and faster....I have the A6000 and I generally like it but it's not a good camera for bird photography because it's complicated to activate the internal zoom: you have to go into the menu and/or assign a button on the camera to use the internal zoom.
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.
Good buy....Fast AF...This allows you to use either a faster shutter speed and avoid camera shake, or a lower ISO and avoid the noise you get from higher ISOs, or a combination of both....It is not only a fantastic portrait lens (it loves people's faces ) it added the ability to take pictures in very low light , great night scenes , sunrises and sunsets.

Good lens...Neat zoom...It is however MUCH faster on the zoom and MUCH MUCH faster on the manual focus....This is a great lens to have for a Sony Alpha 6000 the silver matches the base of the silver Sony alpha 6000 which work great together in the e series lens.

Good buy!...Love it....great lens, great pictures, faster, clear, and powerfull...It's not as large an aperture as I'd like and I'm not that fond of plastic mounts, but it's hard to argue with a wide-angle lens on an APSC for that price.
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.
Sharp lens...Decent lens...I will definitely be looking at faster lenses when I am ready to branch out and purchase additional lenses....This is a step above a kit lens and adds a great range for me while not having to change out lenses for distance and wide shots as much.
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.

This Nikon 18-140mm camera lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for super quiet clicks.
In love...A must have....With VR, I found the lens to be eight times faster....The IQ of this lens is very very good (micro-contrast, color saturation, etc.) along with very fast auto focus.

With a focal length that ranges from wide angle to medium telephoto and a 2.8 maximum aperture, this versatile zoom lens is useful in a broad range of settings.
Best Lens...Cool breh...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 won't weigh you down, or you really want to break into the portrait scene....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.
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 zoom...Great Lens...I would definately recomend this lens if you need a decent telephoto lens, I would also recomend a tripod since it can be a bit tricky to get a clear shot since the lens lacks IS....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.
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.

It's ok....5 stars....I love it because you can get great candid pictures because you can be far enough away where people don't know you are photographing them....I woud rather have gotten a 70-300mm, but it still allows me to zoom in to the top of Pikes Peak from the middle of Colorado Springs.
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.
