If you are worried about the build quality of a Sony 85mm lens then rest assured – it is one of the best lenses around when it comes to the issue of build quality. Just like most Carl Zeiss lenses from Sony, this one too is known for the fit and the looks. It has a good finish making it a pleasure to handle this lens. It has a black finish that reminds one of models such as A900. In fact, it is so good that it almost shines like a black diamond. The DOF marks are kept at F/22, F/16 and at F/8. You also have the feature to hold the focus with just the click of a button. This helps to preview the DOF in some models of Sony cameras. The focus distance window in the lens has markings for both ft and m and that too in two separate colors.
Following the advice and review on this Tokina Lens Review site, I finally decided to purchase this lens. This is such a unique and an unusual lens that I have ever purchased. First of all, it has massive amount of barrel distortion. And then, it is very wide. You can even see your own foot when you are shooting at the widest angle of 10mm. At the 17mm focal length, the distortion effect will be reduced significantly and this lens makes a very good wide angle lens. There are some drawbacks on this lens however. The lens clearly displays some chromatic aberration, especially when you shoot at the 10mm focal length. You need to stop down by at least 2 stops to reduce this effect. Next, there is also some slight vignetting. Stopping down by two stops will also help here or if you prefer, you can edit both in post processing.
Many people are concerned that the Sigma 8-16mm will behave like a fisheye lens. That is, they do not want the extreme distortion that a fisheye lens can produce. Given the focal length, it is normal to think of such a thing. In this review, I will be revealing whether this lens behaves like a fisheye lens or not. After using this lens for around 2 weeks, I can see that there is some distortion on the lens. However, the distortion is not to an extreme degree and can be easily corrected in post processing. Given this, you should not too overly worry about the distortion characteristics on this lens. You can easily use this lens for any landscape shooting or street photography. However, I would not advise using this lens for architecture photography though. The distortion will make the buildings look awkward and unappealing. And you cannot easily correct it in post processing when this happen.
A very important aspect to discuss in any Canon 10-22mm review is the focus of this lens. As it uses Canon’s patented USM motor, the autofocus works quickly and quietly. I am very satisfied with the speed of the autofocus, as it is usually in time to get those all-important instant shots. I have measured that the lens will focus from its closest distance at 24cm until infinity in less than half a second. Another benefit of this lens is that it has an internal focus system, so your polarizing or UV filter won’t rotate when you focus. This comes in very handy, as I have been swearing at lenses that did this to me in the past, as there is nothing more frustrating than adjusting the polarizer until you think it is perfect, just to lose that setting again when the camera focuses. I really think this Canon lens is worth its money.
High-quality, premium-grade motorized curtains should feature the following system features and options. First, a good motorized curtain should be easy to install. It should be lightweight and compact enough to put up on your ceiling or wall, because otherwise you’ve ended up with a low-end and unwieldy product. Furthermore, your motorized curtains’ power supply should be a low voltage DC transformer that plugs into your standard wall outlet, because you don’t want to end up with an item that wastes electricity. You should purchase a curtain with a power-saving feature that uses as little electricity as possible in order to operate. Speaking of operation, your curtains should obviously provide smooth and noiseless operation every time.
Sony Alpha lenses are pioneers when it comes to innovative designs. Sony constantly comes up with newer and better models with really good designs. Unlike traditional models of lenses, the latest models are mirrorless and this goes a long way in reducing the size as well as weight of the lenses. The materials used to construct the lenses are also quite innovative in nature. For example, the NEX-5 is constructed with a magnesium alloy. However, there is no compromise when it comes to the sensors used. Thus the sensor size in the NEX-5, for example, is much larger than the previous models and this sensor is what ensures that the image quality stays superior. Noise levels are also kept low thanks to the superior sensor quality. The NEX-5 also offers the added advantage of high definition movie recording, thereby making it a complete package for use by people with differing needs.
The Sigma 30mm f1.4 is a light-weight lens, which is fast and easy to use. The body of this lens is constructed of plastic and metal and finished with a black paint that contains subtle sparkles. This is a special-purpose, fixed normal focal length lens for small-format digital SLR cameras. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 give good results when hand-held in dim light. The salesperson told me that the Sigma 30mm is a great lens for photographers looking for a full f1/4 in a normal focal length. This lens is available in versions that are compatible with Pentax KAF, Olympus, Nikon, Canon, Minolta A AF, Samsung and Sony cameras. Photographers will get the same angle of view and a greater depth-of-field, as with a 50mm lens. There is no need to move switches to change to manual focus with this lens. The Sigma 30mm is however not a wide-angle lens, but is most certainly great value for money.
If you know much about lenses you will definitely agree with me that the Panasonic 45-200 has good optical performance. The sharpness of this lens is not only good on the centre but also on the borders. This applies to any focal length and aperture, so you can imagine how clear the images taken by this lens are! Chromatic aberration control and distortion control is something commendable on this lens. They are both well controlled at all apertures and focal lengths. On the Panasonic 45-200, vignetting control is superb. It is cheaper to get this lens separately instead of buying it together with the Panasonic G1 camera. By using this lens together with micro 4/3 sensor, you can adjust the focal length to 90-400 (this is the recommended focal length for wildlife photography, sports photography and portraiture photography). In terms of build quality, this lens is the best since good quality materials (plastic and metal) are used to make it. It is also designed well to look descent and smart.
It is always a good experience to take or see quality images/photos- sharp and clear pictures. For this to be the case, the lens of your camera needs to have some quality features. For instance, it needs to have quality zooming power, less or no distortion at all, well controlled chromatic aberration, vignetting control that is greatly controlled and also easy-to-operate lens.The Olympus 50-200mm is a high standard lens that takes good quality images. It can take photos at long distances with less or even no distortion at all. It can be operated by professional photographers or used to take family photos by anyone. This is because its zoom ring and focusing ring are very easy to operate. On this lens, chromatic aberration and distortion control is commendable. At the widest aperture, vignetting is evident at 150mm and 200mm but it is controlled at 50mm and 100mm. This particular lens is silent during its operation. It is also fast and accurate.
