Lenses

  1. Canon 50mm f/1.4 EF Prime Lens


    Canon EF 50mm 1-4

    Canon has it figured out with the 50mm f/1.4.  This all-purpose 50mm fixed lens is great for all kinds of shooting, including interiors and low light.  It’s very flattering as an interview or portrait lens, especially when mounted on a crop factor camera.

    We love this Canon 50mm at f/1.8 and beyond for tack-sharp focus. Many photographers will claim it even outperforms the venerable Canon 50mm f/1.2L at that aperture. It has 58mm front threads, like most of the Canon primes in this class.

  2. Canon 40mm f/2.8 EF STM Prime Lens


    canon-40mm

    Canon’s tiny 40mm f/2.8 lens gives full-frame coverage in a lens that’s less than an inch thick. The STM designation means it’s ready for autofocus in both photo and video. It accepts 52mm filters, and close-focuses to one foot.

    While primes like the 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2.0 are faster, the 40mm f/2.8 is a great lens choice when you need a small size, or video autofocus.

  3. Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 OS Zoom Lens


    sigma-17-50-2-8

    Sigma’s 17-50mm f/2.8 stabilized zoom lens is a direct competitor to Canon’s 17-55mm f/2.8 IS.  Sigma’s lens has similar performance, with lighter weight, better close focusing, and a reduced cost.

    The Sigma 17-50mm lens has an EF mount, but only APS-C coverage, making it a good choice for cameras like a T3i, SL1, or even a C100. It also works well on a GH4 or other MFT cameras, with an EF to MFT adapter. For a full-frame camera like the Canon 5D mkIII, you should consider the Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 instead.

    The lens is a massive upgrade from Canon’s 18-55mm, with a speed advantage of 2/3 to 2 full stops.  This makes it much more useful indoors.

  4. Zeiss 100mm T2.1 CP2 Lens with EF Mount


    Zeiss 100mm T2.1 CP.2 Lens

    The Zeiss CP2 100mm T2.1 lens with EF mount is an excellent long lens on both fullframe and super 35 sensors.  Zeiss CP2s have become a standard for film and television productions.  The Compact Prime family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.  They are most popularly paired with the Sony FS7 and Canon C300.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP2 lenses can be reserved and 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.
