What I want the most is a tie between the 24-120 f/4 or the 135 f/2 DC (defocus control). Most likely will be the manual focus 50 f/1.2

I'd like to swap my zooms over to primes, but what's more likely is to upgrade the zooms to the newer versions.

I've been eye-balling the Samyang 8mm F3.5 in the Sony A mount. It seems like a lot of people have fun with it.

Probably the 16-35 or 17-40 for a 5D2 body. I've already got great lens otherwise for FF or crop (100-400L, 70-200IS 2.8II, 100 macro ~ both IS and nonIS) and I have a 17-55 for my 7D.

Honestly though it will probably be a 2x EF III extender first.

been looking for a good legacy wide angle lens (for my Nex 5r). Minolta rokkor 20/2.8 is my ideal choice...but very hard to come by.

Nothing is even close to being on the horizon because broke, but if I was to buy a lens, i'd be looking at the following:

Wide
--Tokina 16-28
--Tokina 17-35/19-35
--Nikon 18-35

Primes
--105DC
--135DC

I really want the 105 or 135 the most. I loved my 85mm on DX and have been trying to find something to fill its shoes.

You will not be disappointed. It's easily the best lens I own, including the 70-200 2.8 IS II.

The images in the POTN lens archive threads are freaking amazing. There are two seperate threads for it.

No idea... Quite possibly a 100-400.


Or a 35 2.0IS/1.4

Or an 85 1.2


Or that 135 2.0 above lol \:\)


I think I got a while before I buy any more lenses though.

I'd really dig the sigma 35 1.4. i could use something in that range, or something wider then 20, thought 20 usually covers it pretty well actually... something really long would be good, like the 80-400, but i'm thinking a teleconverter might be next.

I'm wary of "off" brands a little, and I'm pretty sure I don't want any more crop frame specific lenses, but that sigma really does seem to be a hell of a deal....

Trust but verify my friend. Buy shit local and if it's garbage return it. Lately my third party stuff has been great. If I was shooting for money I might shoot all L shit but I'm just a serious hobbyist.

Don't be. There is a lot of blind hate for 3rd party lenses as if they're somehow subpar. Sure, some are, but so are some "brand" lenses.

The sigma 35mm f/1.4 is honestly one of the best lenses out there and i've seen pros (or at least people who get paid for their work) buying it and selling their nikon/canon equivalent.

As a hobbyist, I always look for the lens that fits my needs first then provides me the most value (and is what I can afford). I challenged plenty of people to tell the difference between photos taken with my Tamron 17-50 vs. the Nikon 17-55 I had access to and the results were damn near identical. It was my most used lens until I went FX.

My point? Don't disregard 3rd party lenses as you'll be missing out on some great glass at great prices.

Will likely buy another body before buying any more lenses. I've got a 24-70 and a 70-200, and that's pretty good for me. Right now, in school for a few years, so the camera's been collecting dust. Maybe it'll come out of hiding in the summer.

Probably a prime and a long zoom, otherwise I'm pretty happy messing with what I have.

I've been contemplating selling my 24-105 in favor of the newer 24-70. I've also got my eye on a Zeiss 50mm but in reality I won't be buying any new lenses for a while.

I just got the 50mm f/1.4 and 100-400L in the last few months. Saving up now for the 24-70 f/2.8L and the 70-200 f/2.8L. I will eventually get both, trying to decide on which to get first.

My new Rokinon 8mm F3.5 Fisheye lens will be here tomorrow.

I'm glad I waited. They had recently released a newer version with higher quality optics.

Should be a fun lens to play with.

Yeah, I bought the Sony Mount, I have a SLT-A65V.

I got the lens. This Rokinon is identical to the Samyang and Bower versions. They all come out of the same South Korean factory. Some of these 8mm lenses come from the factory with the focus control out of sync with the internals of the lens. It has been like this for years with these lenses. The fix is to pull back part of the rubber and unscrew a few little tiny screws which loosens up the focus wheel. Then to set it so that it is in focus at a pre-measured distance like five feet.

I'm still deciding whether mine is one of the defective ones. I've gotten some super super clear pictures within a few feet. But getting clear images of a subject fifteen feet away ore more is difficult. I don't know if it is just a thing with an 8mm 180 degree FOV lens or if it is defective. I was able to get one clear picture so far with the camera sitting stationary on a table. All of the other pictures were handheld with the Steady Shot turned on and using flash and a high shutter speed.

Besides that though, I really like it. A friend is having her house gutted and rebuilt, I'm going to be using this lens for the after pictures of the inside of her house when it is done. Should be pretty awesome for that.

I returned that 8mm Rokinon today. This was the second generation. The first generation of them tended to have a defect with the focusing wheel. There is a fix that the end user can do.

This lens I got appeared to have a similar problem. Everything past a few feet was out of focus, and it did not matter what the F stop was set at or the focus wheel.

I think there is a similar fix that can be done on this version by the end user. But I'm not going to risk voiding the warranty and breaking it. It is silly that the manufacturer would turn out a lens with a known defect for years and years and then have the same defect in the second generation of the lens.
