  1. Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Lens for Sony E Mount

    The Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Lens is a prime, wide-length lens that covers full frame sensors on cameras like the Sony A7s II, and mounts on any Sony camera with an E mount. Its fast f/2 aperture makes it great indoors, and where you want maximum control over depth of field. The T* coating minimizes reflections and glare.

    This lens is exceptionally sharp, even wide open. The autofocus makes it a natural choice for still photography, landscape photography, events, and documentary work. The digital readout highlights the focus distance and depth of field range.

    The lens has auto and manual focus modes, and iris is controlled electronically. It has 67mm front threads.

    nikon-20

    The Nikon Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AF is a wide angle lens for Nikon F-mount. It’s a full frame lens, and will work as a manual lens on any Nikon DSLR as well as most Nikon film cameras, and in autofocus mode on any  Nikon camera with a focus motor.  It’s Nikon’s smallest and lightest ultrawide lens.

    Nikon primes are also very easily adapted to Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) and Sony E/NEX mount, often for video shooters.

    Close focus is about 10 inches. Set your f-stop manually from f/2.8 to f/22 with detents. This wide angle lens has 62mm front threads.

    nikon-28mm-lens

    The Nikon Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AI-S prime lens is manual focus. It’s very sharp, and a very popular wide angle lens for Nikon mount. It outperforms other Nikon 28mm lenses in bench tests, including the newer 28mm AF lens. It’s small but tough, with an all-metal housing. Nikon primes are also very easily adapted to Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) and Sony E/NEX mount, often for video shooters.

    Close focus is a remarkable 7 inches. Set your f-stop manually from f/2.8 to f/22 with detents. This lens has 52mm front threads.

  4. Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 Zoom Lens

    tokina-16-28

    The Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8  zoom lens for Canon is a full frame wide zoom. That means it works on any Canon EF or EF-S mount camera. Most shooters with crop cameras will probably prefer Tokina’s more portable 11-16mm f/2.8 II lens, though. This lens is very popular with photographers, but docu-style video shooters will appreciate the full-time manual focus option and useful zoom range.

    This lens performs exceptionally well, outperforming most wide zooms from Canon, even wide open. Autofocus is fast and not too loud. Distortion is minimal, making this a great lens for architecture and interiors. The lens hood is built in, and does not accept filters. It close focuses to about ten inches, giving you some creative options for extreme perspective.

The lens is wide without being extreme, covering a field of view of approximately 74 degrees horizontally on full-frame cameras.

  6. Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 EF Ultrawide Lens

    14mm-wide-lens

    The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens fits all Canon digital cameras and anything else with an EF or EF-S mount. 14mm is a great length for dramatic wide angles. This is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as smaller sensors like on Blackmagic and Panasonic cameras.

    It’s not particularly fisheyed, but there is some mustache distortion, which can be addressed in post processing. The lens is manual focus only, but focusing on the fly isn’t much of an issue with a lens this wide.

    This is the photo version of the lens, with a clicking aperture ring and no focus gears. We also have the cinema version, for video shooters. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.

    This lens is our most popular ultrawide lens rental for photographers.

  7. Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 Cine Ultrawide Prime Lens

    14mm-ultra-wide-ef-lens

    This Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 lens is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers, with more than 115-degree angle of view on a camera like the Canon 5D mark III.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as MFT with an adapter.

    The aperture is declicked and the lens is fully manual, making it perfect for video and cinema applications. We also offer the photo lens for photographers. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.  You’ll need a matte box and square filters.

    This lens is popular with Blackmagic camera shooters with EF mount cameras. It also tends to find its way onto productions with the Zeiss CP2 or Schneider FF lenses, when those fullframe lenses just aren’t wide enough.

  8. Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 Lens

    tilt-shift-lens

    The Rokinon tilt-shift 24mm f/3.5 lens is a wide-angle, full frame lens that allows both shift (+/- 12mm) and tilt (+/- 8.5°) adjustments.  This EF-mount lens is popular for architectural work, as well as adding a dreamy focus look to photos and video. It’s also useful for making real life look miniature, with a very distinct plane of focus.

    Usually, we find shooters using this lens at pretty narrow apertures, to regain some control over focus and keep the focal plane extra sharp.  Our tests put the sweet spot for this lens in the f/8 to f/11 range.  The minimum focus distance of 22 cm makes for some creative possibilities with macro, as well.

    The Rokinon tilt-shift lens is also sold as Samyang or Bower.  The front filter threads are 82mm.  The lens is fully manual.

  9. Canon 24mm f/2.8 EF-S STM Prime Lens

    24mm-efs-canon

    The Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 “pancake” lens is a great option for crop-factor cameras when you want small size, or STM video autofocus. It’s a modestly wide lens, useful for group shots, especially indoors with the f/2.8 aperture.  Remarkably sharp, even wide open. It’s the lightest lens Canon has ever made.

    It close-focuses to about 6 inches, making it an appropriate lens for up close shooting.  The lens has 52mm front threads.
