Lens reviews

At above links can be find the reviews of various Canon and Nikon digital camera lenses for Dslr cameras. I don’t do currently scientific tests about resolution, vignetting or chromatic aberration, but more concentrate on the lens value in usage: what purpose is it good for, the price is realistic for the quality and usage value someone get, what are the alternatives on the market, which is perhaps better in some ways, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the given product. I make pictures with each lens and I attach several pictures for the reviews to really can see what the lens is good for, at different apertures.

lens reviews 2

What are the qualities I concentrate on the reviews ?

There are several factors that are important for lens testing. Below I list some of them which is very important to really see a value of a photographic lens.

Sharpness

Sharpness is an essential quality of a photographic lens. Although some people say sentences like, sharpness is not important, rarely any serious photographer use not sharp lenses. Say a bird or wildlife photographer or sports photo reporter to change their super expensive several thousand dollar lens to something less sharp would be an interesting idea. If I want to shoot a tiny bird from a distance as a bird photographer, every fraction of sharpness is definitely needed to see the details of the small bird.

Brightness

Brightness is also a very simple quality of a lens. Simply bright lenses can make sharper images in low light and in daylight as well. The brightness of the lens has to do with the diameter of the glass used. Bigger glass-usually more light, more detail-better images.

Mechanical quality

If we spent a sum for a lens, we hope we can use it not just several days, or months but extended period of time. For high money we want the lens to be durable, perhaps survive serious abuse, without problem. If the lens is simply falls apart by itself not very wise thing to spent to much money on it.

Focal length

Focal length defines the angle of the lens we can work with. There are ultra wide angle, wide angle, normal, telephoto and super telephoto lenses, depending on the focal length. Focal length is essential to know especially at single focal length lenses.

Ultra wide angle lenses

We call wide angle lenses of focal length of 6-15mm on Aps-C sensor sized cameras, or 6-24mm focal lenght on Full frame cameras.


Wide angle lenses

We call wide angle lenses of focal length of 15-30mm on Aps-C sensor sized cameras, or 24-50mm focal lenght on Full frame cameras.

Normal lenses

We call a normal lens with a focal length of 30mm on Aps-C sensored cameras or 50mm on Full frame cameras.

Telephoto lenses

We call a lens telephoto if the focal lenght of the lens is more than 50mm on Full frame cameras, or more than 30mm on Aps-C sized cameras.

Super telephoto lenses

We call a lens super telephoto if the focal length of the lens is 400mm and longer. Super telephoto lenses are used by wildlife or bird photographers, and sport shooters. The good quality super telephoto lenses are usually the most expensive lenses with excellent sharpness and other optical qualities. The price range of this lenses can be from 1000 dollars to 18000 dollars or even more.

Autofocus operation

If we shoot action, sports or wildlife quick autofocus operation is essential. For landscapes, macro,product photography or wide angle work perhaps no so much.

Lens reviews – Zoom lenses

Zoom lenses or vari-focal lenses are a versatile tools for several purposes. There are different types of zoom lenses. There are super zoom lenses with a huge range between wide angle and telephoto, mid range zooms with usually not so long telephoto range, and some zooms which only in telephoto or wide angle, or ultra wide angle range.

Lens reviews – Prime lenses

Prime lenses or single-focal lenses are specialized lenses for a purpose. Mostly used for telephoto or macro work, where the possible highest optical quality needed. Prime lenses are more simple than zoom lenses, usually has better brightness and sharpness but not so versatile. There are wide angle and long telephoto primes as well.

Lens reviews – Teleconverters

Teleconverters are relatively smaller optical elements or lenses which used to give a lens a more magnification. There are 1.4x,1.7x, 2x, and 3x converters. The number shows the increase in focal length you get. The converters typically works best with prime lenses of 135mm focal length or longer. At the same time the lens going to get longer and darker. The 1.4 converters “robs” 1 stops of light, 2x converters 2 stops of light.

Lens reviews – Most popular Canon lenses

Most popular Canon lenses are the 50mm lenses, the 18-55is, 15-85is, 17-55is, the 70-200 L zoom lenses, the 100mm macro, the 85mm f1.8 portrait lens, the Canon 24 105 L, the 400mm f5.6 super telephoto, the 300mm f2.8 L, the 500mm f4 L.

Lens reviews – Most popular Nikon lenses

Most popular Nikon lenses are the 50mm lenses, the 16-85mm, the 18-55mm, the 18-105mm, the Nikon 18-200mm, the 35mm f1.8 lens, the nikon 300 f4 telephoto, the 17-55mm, and the 70-200mm, and the Nikon 105mm macro.
