Fuji builds a great quality lens... light weight and sharp throughout the focal lengths...For either $199 or 299 USD it's a very good lens....Excellent lens!...Fuji cameras offer excellent image quality at ISO 400 and depending on the case up to ISO 1600 which where a slow lens can take you.

The lightweight focusing lens and precision motor ensure quick and silent autofocusing, and the image stabilization delivers sharp images, even in low-light conditions. Pair this Fujinon 230mm lens with your X Series camera for maximum flexibility and easy compatibility.
Great lenz...great item...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....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.

Love it...Nice zoom...This lens allowed me to get up and personal while being at a distance.I am also able to get lots of detail with moving animals or children....I use it for far away shots (my favorite is birds so you don't scare them) and honestly, I use this lens for macro shots (flowers and nature).
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.
Nice Lens...It's good...A circular, 7-blade aperture helps ensure fine background blur and the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer system provides up to four equivalent stops of shake correction....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.

PRO LENS...Great Lens!...It is my new goto lens.The photos from this lens are the best I have ever shot.If you are looking for a great lens get this one.My only regret is I had to buy this from amazon because best buy has not had it in stock for months....But the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is significantly improved over the original, and in my opinion (controlled testing), has sharpness wide open at 200mm that rivals Canon's 200mm f/2.8L II prime.
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.
Love it...Good lens...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....The range it covers (27MM to 210MM} fits perfectly for my usual demands and allows me to carry only this lens when traveling or at home.
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.
Good lens...As a bonus....It's also great for portraits, where you can get further away physically and zoom in for more flattering perspective of faces (and good blur of backgrounds, too)....The extra focal length is immensely useful for shooting outdoors, but also indoors where you are force to be further away from the subject (e.g. gymnastics class, volleyball game, etc).
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.
Awesome Lens...I loved it....However I've received 2 minor scratches on the edges of this lens out of nowhere within a month or 2 and I've never obtained any scratches on any of my lenses of the 7 years I've been into photography....its a great lens but dont know if its worth the price given that off brand lenses pretty much provide the same picture for a intermediate user.
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.
Good combo...great deal...The wide angle lens is great to add more depth to a picture of buildings/monuments when you are at a closer distance and exactly what I was looking for to use when traveling abroad!!...If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one).
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens and EF-S 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens KitCreate the perfect package for portraits and landscapes with this Canon portrait and travel two-lens kit.

Powerful stepping motors make it easy to use this Canon portrait and travel two-lens kit when videoing.
Great lense...Amazing lens...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....Having the simply ridiculous range from fairly wide at 18mm to a great zoom at 300mm means you can do just about anything you can imagine and (legally) pull off without ever having to change lenses.
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.
5 stars...Great buy...I recommend using back focusing (Google it if you don't know what it is), manual shutter and aperture with auto-ISO....Very close close to what I was seeing out of my 70-200 f2.8 and better than my 100-300 f4 Sigma which was a great lens.
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.
Great Lens...Awesome lens....I have a handsome 15months year old son which was my main reason of buying the lens to creat memories for him in the future....Can't thank Best Buy enough for the great customer service; the staff were great, wonderful hold system (the store I went to didn't have the lens, but the associate located it at another store and placed it on hold for me), and an excellent return policy that made me rest easy, should I have purchased the wrong lens, I could return it for full credit.

Awesome Lens!...Love it!!!!!...I cannot think of a purchase that I have ever had so much enjoyment learning to use, using, and getting the most AMAZING results from....It also comes with a zippered, padded lens case, which has a belt-loop on the back so you could hang the padded case (with lens inside) from your belt... it is heavy enough however, that it could slowly start to pull your belt (and pants) down a bit, depending on how tight you wear your belt.
Capture crisp images with this Canon L-Series 9524B002 100-400mm super telephoto lens, which is compatible with most Canon cameras with an EF mount and features standard, panning and exposure-only optical image stabilization modes to promote clear shots.
A must buy....Excellent lens...I recently started doing videography full time and this lens is the best piece of camera equipment I have purchased for my Sony a6300....It is wonderful when traveling to know that 99 persent of the time you need only one lens to satisfy your needs
