Best macro lens 2018: close-up lenses for Canon and Nikon DSLRs

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

If you want to shoot ultra-close-up images, you need a macro lens. There are various ways to shoot extreme close-ups, including the use of hollow extension tubes, reversing rings or close-up ‘filters' that screw into to the accessory attachment thread of regular lenses. However, the main advantage of any ‘system' camera is that you can fit the right lens for the shooting scenario at hand. And when it comes to getting in close, there's no beating a proper macro lens. You'll often see zoom lenses with the word ‘macro' somewhere in their title, but they typically give a maximum magnification...

Best wide-angle lens 2018: ultra-wide lenses for Canon and Nikon DSLRs

Best wide-angle lens 2018: ultra-wide lenses for Canon and Nikon DSLRs

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

Ultra-wide zoom lenses are the thick end of the wedge, at least when it comes to viewing angles. With zoom ranges starting at just 8mm for APS-C format lenses, and 11mm or 12mm for full-frame, you can shoehorn vast areas of a scene into the image frame. It's great for shooting sweeping landscapes or architecture, and arguably even more useful when shooting indoors, where space is limited and your back's up against the wall. Another key attraction of ultra-wide lenses is that you can create images with extraordinary perspective effects. Get in close to the main subject in a scene and you...

Best Canon lenses 2018: 10 high-end optics for full-frame Canon DSLRs

Best Canon lenses 2018: 10 high-end optics for full-frame Canon DSLRs

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

The sheer resolving power of full-frame Canon EOS bodies like the EOS 5DS and 5DS R, with their 50.6MP image sensors, demand the utmost sharpness from lenses, while even the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II have fairly high megapixel counts, at 30.4MP and 26.2MP respectively. But there's more to a good lens than just its ability to resolve fine detail. Handling is a key factor in how a lens performs in real-world shooting. You'll need fast and accurate autofocus, to ensure that you nail defining moments in anything from a fleeting expression in portraiture to action sports and wildlife...

Best Nikon lenses 2018: 10 top options for Nikon APS-C DSLRs

Best Nikon lenses 2018: 10 top options for Nikon APS-C DSLRs

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

Buy any DX format Nikon DSLR as a kit that comes complete with a standard zoom lens and you're off to a great start. With an APS-C format image sensor, the 1.5x crop factor enables lens designs to be relatively compact and lightweight, compared with their FX counterparts, yet with the potential for excellent all-round performance and image quality. However, while a kit zoom lens should prove sufficient for many photographic scenarios, it'll come up short in terms of telephoto reach for shooting action sports and wildlife. You might also find it lacks a sufficiently wide viewing angle for...

Best Canon lenses 2018: 10 top options for Canon APS-C DSLRs

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

Apart from the EOS 7D Mark II , all current APS-C format Canon DSLRs are sold with the option of an included ‘kit' zoom lens. In many cases, you can choose between Canon's latest 18-55mm or 18-135mm lenses, both of which give solid performance and come complete with image stabilization and virtually silent STM autofocus systems, ideal for both stills and video capture. But a basic standard zoom will only get you so far. Even with the generous 1.6x focal length multiplier or ‘crop factor' of Canon EOS APS-C format bodies, the 18-135mm kit lens comes up short in telephoto reach for shooting...
