great item...Great Lens....The lens offers AF and manual focus, and allows manual focus even when AF is set to on, a very useful feature for low-light and other challenging focus situations....I shoot a lot of senior and model photos this lens is excellent at producing great photos for those kinds of shoots, the bokeh from this lens Is fantastic with its smaller aperture.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens: Get sharp, clear photos with this Canon medium telephoto lens that delivers vibrant color and clarity with fast, quiet focusing. The 85mm focal length draws attention to your subject and transforms the background into a soft blur for professional-quality portraits and impeccably detailed close-up shots.
Nice zoom...Great Lens...Since you don't have Image Stabilization and the auto focus is slow and hard to work properly (Trying to focus on a object with major magnification requires a tripod or a VERY steady hand), Manual focus is almost a must....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.
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 lens...Neat zoom...Works fine but is a manual zoom....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.
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.
It's ok....5 stars....If you are using manual focus this isn't a problem, but in auto focus the lens sometimes will focus on the object next to or just behind where I am trying to get the picture and it isn't noticeable until you upload the pictures on the computer....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.
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.
What a difference!...A must have lens...You can unintentionally slide out of steadyshot or manual focus and not notice....I just purchased my 1st full frame doler to shoot the outdoors as I hike and this lens is so sharp.
Get a little closer to your subject with this Sony 70-300mm lens. Built-in optical stabilization delivers solid results even under low-light conditions, and the dust-resistant design helps prevent speckles from forming on the sensor itself. Narrower apertures from f/4.5-5.6 ensure you get wider depths of field with this Sony 70-300mm lens.
Good lens...Great Buy...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....good zoom, I can also use the extra 2 times zoom or clear image zoom In the camera, the camera extends the zoom, cleans the image and you got extra zoom from the camera, works well, I used for some moon shots already.
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.
Sharp lens...Decent lens...I love how the manual focus ring is easy to use....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. 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.
I loved it....GREAT lens!...I think Sigma's Art series lens is better and the Nikon 85mm 1.4 is definitely better in areas of chromatic abberation and distortion, but for the price it is great....The general consensus was that this is a great one of portrait and medium-distance action and landscape photography.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Medium Telephoto Lens: Transform every portrait into a work of art with a lens that delivers exceptional image quality and rich color saturation even at wide open apertures. Whether you're capturing headshots, wedding photos or nature images, this medium telephoto lens offers all you need for professional results in almost any lighting conditions.
Very sharp....Great lens!...It's expensive considering you could buy a couple of decent prime lenses for the same amount, but I wanted to by a DX lens with VR for my D7000, and something light and with a decent range....Other reviews suggested this lens has a tendency to suck in dust, but I have had no issues with it during or after using it for a couple of weeks in a very dusty environment.
Designed for use with select Nikon DX-format DSLR cameras, this Nikon NIKKOR 2216 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G telephoto zoom lens allows you to capture sharp shots of both near and faraway subjects and scenes.
Amazing Lens...All terrific....I thought long and hard before purchasing this lens and for the money invested, this lens fits the bill perfectly....The VR helps to alleviate the rather mediocre aperture setting, so you can compensate for the lower light with a longer shutter speed.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Super Telephoto Zoom Lens: Designed for use with most Nikon cameras with an F-Mount, this super telephoto zoom lens lets you capture birds, wildlife, motorsports and events in crisp clarity. The f/5.6 constant aperture helps you achieve out-of-focus backgrounds and lets you shoot in dim lighting.
Not bad!...great lense...Great Bulr but the lens has some back-front focusing issues....It's heavy and expensive but I knew that well before I purchased it and frankly don't care.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Medium Telephoto Lens: Capture the essence of every moment with this medium telephoto lens that's perfect for portraits, weddings, action shots and more. The 85mm focal length draws attention to the point of focus by highlighting your subject against a softly blurred background, and the wide aperture performs brilliantly in low-light settings, without the need for a flash.
can't go wrong with it!...Love it...I have alot of Canon lenses but this is by far my favorite lens....razor-thin depth of field is great, and allows you to shoot in lower lighting conditions.
