Lenses

  1. Sony 50mm f/1.8 Lens


    The Sony 50mm f/1.8 Lens is a prime, normal-length lens that covers full frame sensors on cameras like the Sony A7s II, and mounts on any Sony camera with an E mount. A go-to portrait lens on an APS-C body, its fast f/1.8 aperture makes it great indoors and when you want maximum control over depth of field. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery with slower shutter speeds, and the unique 7-bladed aperture design creates fantastic bokeh quality at all f-stops.

    The lens has auto and manual focus modes, and iris is controlled electronically.

  2. Zeiss 85mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount


    The Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 lens with EF mount is an excellent long lens on both full frame and super 35 sensors.  The Compact Prime lens family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect circle bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP.2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP.2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP.2 lenses can be rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

    Insurance or a deposit is required for this rental.

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


    canon-100-400-lens

    The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens is a professional-level telephoto lens. It features image stabilization, very fast USM focusing, and outstanding imaging performance.

    This long lens is often the best choice for outdoors: particularly sports, wildlife, weddings and other events. It is also an amazing portrait lens, creating extreme subject-background separation and telephoto compression. It is a popular choice for both photo and video shooters.  If you need an even longer lens, we suggest renting it with our Canon 1.4x telephoto extender.

    The EF mount fits every Canon DSLR ever made, and can be mounted on most mirrorless cameras with an adapter. At three pounds, it’s on the heavier side, but a tripod foot is included with the lens rental. Like many Canon L-series and telephoto lenses, It has 77mm front threads. The lens extends significantly when zoomed, making it a poor choice for matte boxes.

    28-70-sony-lens

    The Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS zoom lens is an all-purpose lens that covers full frame sensors on cameras like the Sony A7s II, and mounts on any Sony camera with an E mount. The Optical Steady Shot (OSS) makes for sharper handheld photos and smoother handheld video shooting.

  5. Sony 18-105mm f/4 OSS Zoom Lens


    18-105-rental

    Sony’s 18-105mm f/4  image stabilized midrange zoom is a versatile lens for both still and video uses.  The Optical Steady Shot (OSS) image stabilization makes handheld still photos sharper and handheld video smoother.  The lens covers an APS-C/Super 35mm imaging area, meaning you’ll have complete sensor coverage on cameras like the Sony FS7 and A6000, but can still work in crop mode on full frame cameras like the Sony A7s II. The lens is surprisingly light, as well.

    The lens has a servo motor, making smooth zooms possible on a mirrorless camera body, something no other manufacturer has offered to this point.  The E mount (sometimes called NEX mount) works with all modern Sony interchangeable lens cameras.

  6. Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD Zoom Lens EF


    tamron-24-70

    The Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD EF zoom lens is a versatile midrange zoom. The f/2.8 speed matches Canon’s 24-70 zoom, but Tamron has added image stabilization (they call it vibration compensation or VC).  The zoom range is very useful, from moderately wide to short telephoto. The EF mount and full-frame coverage mean it works on every Canon DSLR ever, as well as any camera with an EF or EF-S mount.

    For photo shooters, the Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) motor makes for fast and accurate autofocus. Vibration compensation is helpful for stills, and exceptionally helpful for handheld video.

    The Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC close focuses to 18″ and has 82mm front threads.

  7. Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens EF


    8mm-cine

    The Rokinon (or Samyang) 8mm T3.8 HD fisheye is a cinema-geared prime lens for cameras with Super 35mm and smaller sensors and EF or EF-S mounts.  Larger sensors will show vignetting. This lens is incredibly wide, with a modest amount of fisheye distortion.

    This is the cine version of the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5. The cine lens features a de-clicked aperture and cine gears for easy use with a follow focus.

  8. Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro telephoto lens


    100mm-macro-IS-lens

    The Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lens is well-suited to shooting small objects up close, as well as portraits. The macro lens has a 1:1 magnification, and the EF mount will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras (that means every Canon DSLR ever made).

    The image stabilization is useful for handheld video work, as well as portraiture. Most macro photographers will using a tripod, making IS less necessary. Autofocus is fast and accurate. The lens accepts 67mm front filters.

    The lens is optically near-perfect, with remarkable sharpness, virtually no distortion, and great imaging corner-to-corner.

  9. Opteka 6.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens EF


    ultrawide-fisheye-lens

    The Opteka 6.5mm f/3.5 HD fisheye is an extreme wide-angle lens that produces an edge-to-edge image on an APS-C sized sensor. We know of (very few) lenses for Canon that are wider, but they are circular fisheye lenses.  This lens is really, really, obscenely wide. Straight lines will appear bent, and perspective is extreme. This lens is best suited to specialty applications, like comedic perspective shots and Beastie Boys music videos.

    Performance-wise, this lens performs reasonably well, considering how extreme it is. If it’s not using the same optics as the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5mm, it’s close enough that we couldn’t tell in quick comparison testing.

    The lens is an EF mount, so it will fit on a fullframe camera like the Canon 5D series, but it will function as a circular fisheye (the corners of your image will remain black).

    The lens is fully manual, with aperture and focus controls on the barrel.  Focus is nearly irrelevant on a lens this wide, with a hyperfocal distance of about 3 feet wide open. The lens hood is detachable. The lens lacks front threads, so round filters are not an option.

    This lens is designed to work with any crop-factor Canon DSLRs, such as the T-series, 7D series, 60D, 70D, etc.

  10. Sony 0.8x Wide Conversion Lens


    sony-0_8x-lens

    The Sony 0.8x wide conversion lens attaches to the front of a Sony EX3, EX1, PMW-200, or PMW-300 lens, providing a wider angle of view. It is a zoom-through adapter, meaning it works at all focal lengths.

    The lens adapter is a bayonet mount, replacing the Sony lens shade. It’s an excellent option when shooting with most of Sony’s ENG/EFP cameras, especially indoors or in cramped spaces.
