Best lens...Good deal...It has allowed me to be versatile while taking photos and the shots look very professional....Offers a nice "Standard" view of your scene, nice fast aperature at wide open (f1.8) and closes all the way down to f/22 (depending on the body and the amount of light, among other things).
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.
Great product...Amazing Sharpness!...This has to be one of Canon's best Macro lens for the Semi pro....Of the three macro lens focal lengths offered by Canon, the 100mm hits the "sweet spot" across the gamut of ultra-close macro to mid-distance portraiture.
Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens: This Canon macro lens enables life-size magnification of small subjects. The included macroflash makes it easy to take close-ups even in dim lighting, while the inner focusing and ring USM offer sharp images with negligible blur.
Fantastic Ultra-wide Zoom...Great ultra-wide zoom for Nikon D750...Let me start by saying that I am not a pro photographer....The 15-30mm is great for photographing Real Estate interiors and has minimal distortion, especially compared to the Rokinon.
Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens for Nikon: This wide-angle zoom lens features vibration compensation technology and eBAND antireflective coating, so you can capture smooth, clear panoramic images with minimal ghosting and blurring. Fluorine coating repels water and dirt to protect the lens from damage.
It is a tad heavy but still manageable....Great Lens...I think some pros get this lens because it works so well.
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens:Capture stunning images with this Tamron telephoto lens.

Great long distance bird lens....Great lens...Simply fantastic prime lens...600 mm and with the tel adapter 840 mm that you can hand hold because of five way stability built into the lens.

Featuring weatherproof construction, this Olympus M. Zuiko digital 25mm lens is hermetically sealed to provide protection from water, dust and cold weather.
Good lens...Love it...It gives a very nicely effect for blurry backgrounds (don't know the right terminology), and also it forces me to move to get the right spot to get everything in frame....I'm absolutely in love with the photos this lens allows me to capture, but if you are looking at lenses, keep in mind that this lens does not have the option to zoom in and out.
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.
Love it....smart buy...The 35mm focal length is perfect for indoors allowing the user to take in subjects, epecially where with a 50mm a wall would have stopped you from backing up any further for the shot, even head shots of people across a table from you as one review mentioned....But I keep this lens on my camera at all times indoors so I can finally catch those shots of the kids running around being adorable or doing something goofy and not have to worry about flash or overexposed pictures or out of focus pictures because the kit lens wasn't able to keep up or wasn't open wide enough to take a good shot.
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.
Great Lens...NOT BAD...quick and easy to attach, love the way it takes pictures from a distance and the look like you are right at the object you are taking pictures of....I used this lens the most so far on a camping trip and it allowed me to capture some wildlife pictures that I would have never gotten without it....Omg, this is a great lens that came as my package deal on my Canon camera I purchases on Black Friday and totally worth the money!
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.
Not bad...I like it...But over all I like this lens for a starter lens, but would recommend the combination lens over this one, if you have a choice and the money,but as I said this one came with the bundle....This, like all Canon lenses, is a high quality lens and with the focal lengths beginning at 55mm - this can easily be your "only" lens - replacing the typical 50mm with the added benefit of zooming smoothly to 250mm to get you right in the action.
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.
Good len...good deal...I bought this with the idea that it was lighter and less bulky than the traditional DSLR, however I opted to go for the weather proof Olympus, nothing wrong with this camera, I am just into extreme conditions and realized this would not do it for me....One great thing about this lens is that it's compatible with the NEX and Alpha lines...you can also use with the E-Mount's but need an attachment....I got this on Black Friday as a package good deal.
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.
Nice lens...Good buy!...However that isn't really the purpose of any wide angle lens, so as long you adjust the shutter and iso respectfully the f4.5 shouldn't be a problem....Closer to 10 mm gives the characteristic distortion wide angle lens are known to have and then 18 mm is the same as any basic 18-55 mm lens which isn't distorted.
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.
I love it...Love it!!...It allowed me to get the background of photos without having to move so far back like my 50 mm lens and it lightened up my photos without me needing to know how to use pro level features...I usually take portrait photos (and this creates beautiful bokeh) but this lens also works great for indoor events especially since the wide aperture allows a lot of light to flow in.
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.
Love it!...The Best...I knew I was gonna catch grief from the wife but when we hit the park to take pics and she reviewed them on the camera her jaw dropped along with mine the pics are phenomenal of the kids, the bokeah is off the charts people if you are waiting like I did for nearly a year just buy it you'll be glad you did....Never shoot below 1/125 shutter speed anyway so not quite sure how IS performs compared to non-is but it is definitely sharper than the non-is version.
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.
Fast motor....Nice lens!...But in general the image quality is the best that you can get, a very very cool lens, the best of the best, if you are searching to take head shots only....The focus is crisp and fast, while being near silent for those times you want to play with hd video (most are loud enough to be perceptible in the captured audio).
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.
