This lens is a good example of acquiring good glass for not a lot of money and could be of interest to those of us who canít justify the high cost of a quality Macro lens.The lens is a Vivitar 90mm f2.8 Macro which achieves 1/1 without tubes, in Canon FD fitting

It was manufactured in 1980 and made by Komine. Not sure where this lens has been for the last 30 years but it seems as if it has just come out of a box. Some very impressive reviews on the web.
An adaptor is required to fit it to the new EOS mount. The Lens Doctor brand adaptor is not cheap as it has true infinity focusing and the electronics to give `focus achieved` notification in the viewfinder, but is the best by a mile.

The cost of this lens was my successful bid on E Bay for £80. Even allowing for the added cost of the adaptor this lens is still bargain basement.

This is an early study taken with this lens

Any f 1.4 lens is going to be expensive when compared to the others in the range. Unless you have a need for a fast lens then the less expensive 1.8 would cover most requirements. The advantage is that the f1.4 would be better in low light conditions.

A 35mm lens is known as a wide angle lens and is useful for landscape and shots indoors where you are photographing groups of people or in limited spaces.

The 50mm lens is known as a standard lens, a hangover from the 35mm film camera days. It is a good work horse and is used for general photography.

You can get a zoom lens which covers 18mm (wide angle) and all the inbetween sizes up to 50mm which on digital cameras is a small telephoto as the image is larger than it would be if used on a 35mm camera.

Cannon sell the above lens as part of their kit price with a range of bodies. It is not a bad lens but not as good as a dedicated prime lens but good enough for most general photography.

Have a look on ebay as there are some good deals on used and new models. Pick one of the trusted dealers and you canít go wrong as you are covered by a returns policy. Pay by Paypal and you should be covered.

Check out lens reviews on the web for the model you are interested in. My best advice if you are certain of the lens you want then donít settle for second best you will end up buying twice and that will be expensive

As a beginner to all this dslr photography I dont want to re-mortgage the house until I know if i'm going to advance beyond auto mode.

Just wondering about the quality of these cheaper options.

Otherwise considering a 50mm f1.8 canon version at £80, or 50mm f1.4 at £250 is it worth the extra money for the 35mm f1.4

All I can say really, without even looking at the item you refer to, is that you get what you pay for. The canon one is £1200 for a reason!

Lens question

Has anyone used any lenses by a company called samyang. They do a 35mm f1.4 wide angle prime lens to fit canon for about £350 with a 3 year warranty, that I was considering buying. Just wondering what the quality is like. I know Tamron and sigma make accepted cheaper alternatives are these samyang lenses on par with those??

Think the canon version is about £1200 so cant afford one of those.

This image was produced using a flat bed scanner set at 600 dpi with a high pass filter introduced in Photoshop.
Needs some work but worth having a look at with other subjects
