Pentax-DA 14mm f/2.8 ED (IF)

With a crop factor of 1.5x on the *istD cameras, this equates to a field of view similar to 21mm on a 135 format camera and is a little less wide than most of the opposition are achieving at the present time. On top of this, the performance of this...

Canon EF 180mm L Macro

This is Canon's offering in the long, medium telephoto macro area of interchangeable lenses. Long because it is about as long as true Macro lenses go although it is still only a medium telephoto lens in the overall picture. We take a look here at how...

Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

A popular lens that that is superficially well built but has a few quirks and an Achilles heel in the bearing problem. It is probably worth buying any extended warranty that is offered with it. If you get a good one it is well worth hanging on to but...

Olympus Zuiko ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5

This telephoto zoom from the Olympus stable, designed for the 4/3rds mount system equates to a 100-400mm in 35mm terms when you apply the 2x crop factor that the 4/3rd system uses. We take a look at how this optic performs.

Nikon 18-200 AF-S DX VR f/3.5-5.6 G

This lens is Nikon's entry into the comparatively new group of superzooms designed exclusively for cropped sensor cameras and carries the DX coding to signify this. We take a look at their efforts, which is the first to carry a stabilising device.

Olympus Zuiko ED 18-180mm f/3.5-6.3

Zoom lenses with a ratio of 10:1 or greater have become known as Superzooms and to some are the Holy Grail of interchangeable lenses. The reality is that they need a number of compromises to achieve their range and make a ‘Jack of all Trades' rather...

Nikon AF-S 200-400mm f/4 G ED VR

This top end lens from Nikon is another that looks like it requires a pilot's licence to operate it! Bristling with knobs, buttons and switches, it takes a long study just to see them all. But are they of any use? We take a look.

Sigma 55-200 f/4-5.6 DC

As a popular focal length range for purchase as a second lens on cropped sensors, and often offered in twin lens kits, this lens, starts at the point where most standard kit lenses finish and goes out to a good medium telephoto length. We take a look...

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Lens

Distortion ranges from mild barrel at 18mm to near distortion free at 35mm to slight pincushion distortion at 50mm. Colors seem fine - neutral. Some people think this lens produces warm/yellow results, but I am not noticing this. The 7-blade aperture...

Konica Minolta AF 200mm f/4 Macro APO

At the top end of the true Macro range are a group of lenses around the 200mm mark. Giving a good working distance from the lens, we take a look at this offering from Konica Minolta.

Konica Minolta AF Macro 50mm f/2.8 (D)

Minolta, or Konica Minolta as they are now, have a long standing reputation for the quality of their lenses and for the most part this example does not disappoint. Build quality is good and the lens handled well with the exception of the autofocus....

Nikon AF-S 12-24mm f/4 DX G ED

Nikon were the first to produce a dedicated ultra wide angle lens for their cropped sensor cameras and they obviously put all their experience of both SLR lenses and wide angle for smaller sensor (Coolpix) lenses to full use. Despite some more recent...

Canon 75-300mm USM III

Despite its drawbacks, this is still quite a usable budget telephoto lens. It does not carry much of a weight penalty, and therefore has more chance of being in the bag when you want the extra reach that it offers. In its class, its biggest drawbacks...

Nikon Micro-Nikkor 200mm/4 IF

This lens is the longest focal length in Nikon's line-up of Macro lenses. Nikon call them Micro, but they do the same job as everybody else's Macro lenses and that is to produce images that are a 1:1 ratio on the film or sensor. Not only is it Nikon's...

Sigma 500mm F4.5 EX DG HSM for Nikon/Fujifilm

Although hardly what you could call a budget price, this lens is the most affordable of the 500mm prime lenses that are available. Primes at this sort of focal length are well into the realms of ‘specialist' lenses, so we take a look at what you are...

Nikon AF-S VR-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 G (IF)

This lens is Nikon's version in the professionally specified and very popular 70-200 range. It incorporates Nikon's own variety of stabilisation, in this case called VR (Vibration Reduction) and, as with other stabilised lenses, there are two modes....

Cosina 100mm f/3.5 Macro

This lens provides fairly good optical performance at a very low price. If you really cannot afford the price of a more reputable lens, and you can cope with the Kinder Surprise build quality and slow autofocus, then this lens will do the job. However...

Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye

What could we write in the summery? If someone needs an ultra wide-angle zoom, fish-eye type and wants to use it on a small APS-C/DX detector, then there is no other choice than the Tokina. In this situation only a huge test failure would convince...

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens

Another note: There is now a Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens "II" shipping in some Canon EOS body kits. My understanding is that only cosmetic changes were made for the "II" designation. According to Canon, "The major changes are the shape of the...
