Loved it....Love it....It also has a rear focusing system, plus a high speed CPU and improved AF algorithm for high-speed AF; and offers full-time manual focus for quick adjustments....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.
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.
So far I am very happy with the Sigma 18x250....Truly great lens for macros and zooms....The one ting I've found is that the manual focus works better then the autofocus when I'm taking pics of my turtles....I feel that this lens is a bit heavier, but not as heavy as two lenses.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) in this Sigma 883306 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS Macro HSM digital zoom lens enables fast, precise autofocus when used with your compatible APS-C-format Nikon digital camera. The OS (optical stabilizer) ensures crisp shots.
best lens...Good lens...This lens is great....love how it has auto focus and manual modes....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....This lens came with our Black Friday Deal and has good quality.

Great lens...Great buy...Works fine but is a manual zoom....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!
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.
Nifty Lens...I love it....Great quality and smooth manual and power zoom....It is great as a wide angle as well as a medium telephoto lens with very good clarity, stabilization and when zooming does not extend the lens size.
Get the shot you desire with this 18-105mm Sony SELP18105G midrange zoom lens that is compatible with select Sony E-mount cameras and features Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to help ensure crisp images. An integrated lever offers smooth zooming.
Great lens!...Great Lense...I could not get it to auto focus on the moon, I had to switch it manual mode on the lens and camera....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.
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.
GREAT LENSE...Good lens...Clear pictures, smooth functionality with easy to follow instructions....It will be great for a lot of photography but it still won't be on my camera nearly as often as my shorter, lighter, wider "walk around" lens (Canon 28-135 IS lens).
Canon EF 70–200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens: This professional-grade telephoto zoom lens is useful for capturing a broad range of subjects, from portraits to outdoor sports. Plus, its lightweight construction makes it ideal for travel.
Good deal...Great add...Manual focus and auto functions are easy to use....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!
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 Lens...Good to buy...Easily shift between autofocus and manual....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'll quickly feel the pinch of not enough light to maintain a reasonably fast shutter speed so the action doesn't get blurred.
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.
Awesome lense...Pros: 1....I bought a D610 at Best Buy, knowing I would use it with my legacy manual focus lenses from bygone days when I was a pro....Everything I wanted, a little bit heavy though, but overall, a great way to go around with just one lens.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28–300mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR Standard Zoom Lens: This lens lets you photograph a scene from multiple perspectives, whether you aim to capture the expanse of a bridge or the flight of a bird. The minimum focusing distance of 18 inches lets you can zero in close on your subjects. Its lightweight build and versatility make it an excellent lens for travel photography.
Great images!...A Real Winner...I'm trying to get away from using the auto mode and learn to use the Manual setting....This is a small price to pay as it balances very nicely in the hand and is very well built.
Canon EF-S 17–55mm f/2.8 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens: This Canon EF-S standard zoom lens combines a fast autofocus with image stabilizer technology for consistent image quality throughout the zoom range. A wide-open f/2.8 maximum aperture draws attention to your subject by creating a soft background blur, resulting in professional-quality portraits and scenic images, even in low-light settings.
Nice high quality lens....This lens is incredible....THE ONLY DOWNSIDE: Autofocus during filming is kind of slow, but I don't use it often anyway since I like to have full manual control over the image for video....Because of the 5 axis stabilization, my hit rate has improved significantly.
Capture stunning shots with your compatible Micro Four Thirds-format camera using this Olympus M. Zuiko V314060BU000 12-40mm f/2.8 wide-angle zoom lens that features high-speed Imager AF (MSC) to help ensure crystal-clear images.
great travel lens...fantastic clarity...However, after comparing the image quality to an open-box Rokinon 12mm f2.0 manual lens costing less than a third of the open-box Sony's nearly seven bills, I simply couldn't justify spending that much on a lens that might not see that much use....This is a great lens for vlogging as it allows you to hold the camera closer to you and still get yourself in the shot.
Ideal for landscape photography and emphasizing perspective, this Sony SEL1018 10-18mm wide-angle zoom lens features built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to produce crisp images and videos.
Not Bad...Nice lens!...I did a comparison using a tripod and manual focus with each lens on the D7200....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.
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.
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.
