- Great lens for the price- January 23, 2021
I was looking for a lens I could use for macro photography. I seen this one was on sale and did not break the bank. It does exactly what I need. Since it does not have VR I recommend using a tripod or monopod. I have a 35mm and 50mm, this lens will get you a lot closer. I have included photos I have taken, both macro and landscapeYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome Lens- September 25, 2021
This is a great macro camera for beginners. It takes crisp pictures and I recommend focusing it manually.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- great for indoor use- August 28, 2021
This lens rocks for inside use, especially on people. I'm talking it looks like professional photograper photos. But I've tried to use it on flowers and outdoor photography and can't get the correct settings. (If I could it would get 5 stars) On outdoor pics everything is either washed out, overly vivid on flowers to where they look fake or just not focused well. I would say if you want indoor photos of people this is a great lens for that. I'm a new Dslr/Mirroless user so maybe I just need practice but I'm pleased I got it for indoors. I have it attached to a Nikon Z50 camera I bought a few weeks before I purchased this Nikkor 40 mm f/2.8 macro lens, so I had to buy a Z mount to use the f2.8 lens on my camera. I bought the camera in a bundle with 2 lens and they are beginner entry level lens from what the best buy employee told me. This is an upgrade for sure. Here's a few low light fall decor pics. I'm pleased with it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lens, great price.- May 15, 2021
This is an excellent lens for the price. The auto-focus is a bit touchy and slow, but I usually shoot manual anyway. Very pleased with this lens.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Pic Partner with STUNNING Video- April 26, 2013
I've waited a few years after my DSLRs died for a good HDSLR and whoah nellie is this a great camera with awesome video! What sets it apart from the others I tried is having the controls you need, even as simple as it sounds AF vs MF.. right on a button/knob. With the MB15 grip having both dual batteries and dual memory card slots, PHENOMENAL for what I do. I can walk miles and miles on the nature trails and shoot 1200 + pics without changing batteries or memory cards.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
