This Pentax Super Takumar 105mm f/2.8 is a decent lens stopped down a wee bit and you can’t go wrong with it if you find a good deal. Being a M42 mount you can use this lens on some Digital camera bodies with an Ebay M42 Adapter. Also split focus screens from Ebay make focusing […]
There are some extremely amazing lenses out there and this Pentax-A 100mm f/2.8 SMC Macro is a prime example of mechanical and optical perfection. However this is a hard to find lens and still costs just as much as a newer auto focus 100mm macro lens even today. For perfect focus I would check Ebay […]
This was a good showdown with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX Vs. Bell & Howell 85mm f/1.4. Both lenses are extremely good but both give options for your needs. In the end if you need auto focus go with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM but if you are on a budget and can […]
This Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM is a fantastic lens for the price with quick focus, sharp photos and really nice bokeh producing some really nice portraits. For a while I went crazy telling everyone around me to go out and buy one because they are so good.

This Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Series E is a fantastic little lens which people give away as body caps and can be found on tons of film SLR bodies. This incredibly small lens is a great pocket lens to carry and works perfectly on Nikon’s DSLR’s and other DSLR’s brands with Ebay adapters!
I just have to say something! So Nikon just announced their Nikon 58mm f/1.4G AF-S Nikkor lens tonight. My initial thought was $1700 for a f/1.4 seems crazy right? I sat there and looked in question and then it clicked. Then I wished I had a D800 and $1700! I have currently downsized my Nikon […]
This Chinon 55mm f/1.4 Auto is fantastic mechanically and optically. There is not a whole lot of talk about this lens and probably for one reason. The rear element sticks out a fair bit and can hit the mirror on certain cameras if your using it on a DSLR with an adapter. However moving the […]
