Review – LensPen

You have GOT to get you one of these babies. This is a LensPEN Lens Cleaning System, and it is probably one of the handiest photography tools I have purchased in a long, long time. Certainly it’s the best ten bucks I’ve spend on gear. The LensPen is the size of a small magic marker. […]

Macro Photography Without a Macro Lens

Love macro photography, but can’t afford a macro lens? These nifty little gadgets may be for you! A reverse mount adapter, or “reversing ring”, like this one from Fotodiox, is an adapter that attaches to the filter thread on the front of a lens and makes it possible to attach the lens in reverse.

Comparing Two Canon Lenses

I had the opportunity to try out, compare, and contrast two different lenses a couple of weeks ago: the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens, and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens. Both are considered among the best general purpose lenses available on the market today. With their somewhat similar focal length and […]

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens

This post was submitted by Lance Bowen. After finally acquiring a full-frame camera I found that I had overlooked the fact that my only wide-angle zoom was an EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. A great lens but not compatible with a full-frame. So I read and reread reviews, specs, etc., until I decided the EF […]

I’m thinking of the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens. Has anyone had any experience with this lens? Would you recommend something else? The reason I […]
