Which is the best Canon right angle spy lens?

Which is the best right angle spy lens for a canon? Do they work effectively? I was looking at this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Opteka-Voyeur-Ri ght-Digital-Cameras/dp/B001TQ1850 Has anyone used this one, is it good? Any better brands? Thanks

CiaoChao | Jun 30, 2012
If you want a spy lens then you can't really beat the 800mm f5.6L IS and the 1200mm f5.6L. The 1200mm f5.6L was a special order lens, and was the kind of thing that was made for the FBI and CIA, now that's a proper spy lens.

What canon camera lens should I buy next for fashion photography?

So my birthday is coming up soon and I'm allowed a new lens but I don't know which to get! I currently have: Canon: 18-55 mm Canon: 38-76mm (zoom) Zeewer: super wide macro lens NIkula: telescopic lens I can also borrow these off family: Canon: 75-300mm (zoom) Tamron: wide angle lens & a canon flash gun I'm really wanting to do more fashion/ portrait photography this summer as I would like to build a portfolio for uni (want to study photography or fashion photography/promotion). I would like to know what lens would be best for doing this type of photography (on location shoots mainly) or any other equipment that might be useful. Any advice is appreciated, the cost doesn't matter :) thankyou!

Get a 50 1.8, another speedlite, an off-camera cord for the flash and some fashion photography books.
fhotoace | Jun 27, 2012
If you may have noticed, those of us who shoot fashion use 24-70 mm f/2.8 and 70-200 mm f/2.8 lenses. Most lighting used when shooting fashion includes more than one flash, usually either four or more studio flashes or incandescent lamps (used when shooting runway events).
CiaoChao | Jun 28, 2012
Actually all your lenses have a use, and anything between 28 and 300mm (in full frame terms) which converts to anything between 18mm and 180mm has a use. I think you already have enough choice in lenses, and if you've not yet thought about lighting, you must look to get something. If you have a large studio space, then you can go for the full setup with proper studio strobes, you will want four in this setup. For a pop-up-studio setup, you can get away with using flashguns (speedlights), again three or four will do. Plus you will want light stands, softboxes/octobox and/or umbrellas, beauty dishes, snoots, grids, reflectors, maybe some barn doors and a ring light or ring light adapter.
Clevercloggs | Jun 28, 2012
Personally the lenses you have and the 75-300 are suitable for almost any occasion. If you want to do catwalk photos without flash perhaps a wider aperture lens (f1.8) of 85mm or something like that.
MW | Jun 29, 2012
50mm f1.8 would be a good bet, nicely blurred background when you open the aperture, and sharp when you close it down. Produces great portraits at about f4. As for other stuff, a cheap radio flash trigger would be a good buy to get you experimenting with different positions for the flash gun without spending loads on extra lights ect.

    Great lens, especially for the very low price

    PROS* Very sharp across the image, even wide open.* Low Chroma. I read a test ([...]) that found higher than normal amounts of CA in this lens at some apertures, but I don't see it. My standard test is to shoot bare tree limbs on bright sunny days & look for purple fringing, especially at the edges. I'm not seeing anywhere near the level of fringing shown in some of their test shots.If anything, I'd call it "low" I read elsewhere that one of Canon's goals in adding the aspherical element to this lens was to reduce CA, so I'm thinking maybe the lens tested in photozon.de was just a bad apple.* Image Shake control works. I can't attest to how often it provides a full 4 stops worth of shake reduction, but I can see a very clear result when using it.* Fast accurate focusing. One of the reasons I purchased this lens was because I was dissatisfied with the performance of my (more expensive) Sigma 17-35 EX (the newer model), which while sharp, is just too slow and... 5/5 Trustme "notapundit" (CO) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This lens has caused a mild stir on the internet in the last few months. To my mind, it's the zoom equivalent of Canon's 50mm f1.8, in the sense that it's very cheap but performs very well. On an optical level it has no obvious deficits apart from a bit of bulge at the wider settings. Physically it is small and light, and the image stabilisation works well. As a package, at this price level, it's hard to resist if you want a cheap decent walkaround lens. The only obvious competition I can think of is the Sigma 18-50mm, but that doesn't have image stabilisation, and from what I have seen it's blurry around the edges; at the very least, it offers nothing over the Canon 18-55mm IS and it's no cheaper.This is the third version of Canon's 18-55mm camera kit lens. The first two editions of the lens were regularly derided on the internet for poor sharpness at the corners, chromatic aberrations, and general naff build quality. I can't confirm any of that, because I haven't used... 4/5 Mr. A. Pomeroy (Wiltshire, England) - See all my reviews, August 2, 2008

    What a value!

    I only got this lens, vowing to only do "L" glass since using my 50mm f/1.2, because it got a sizzling review in PopPhoto. It's clarity was just under a $2,000 Nikon lens reviewed on the same page.I opened the box, and got just what I expected for under $200-a small, cheap feeling lens. It is the first EF-S I've owned, and the white mark for aligning it to mount matched up on my Canon 40D, instead of the red mark I usually use.I haven't had time to put it through the paces, but I will say that I am really impressed with the clarity of the pictures. I have a crappy Canon 28-135mm that is just pitiful in the clarity department-and that set me back $400! I put a shot of one of my dogs up for this product in the customer images.

    Is this lens as bad as some people say it is?

    No it's not especially if you take into account its intended users. If you use a Canon digital SLR and are satisfied with the kit lens (18-55) then buying this lens can be the perfect next step for you. Practically speaking, you will be able to increase your zoom reach to the point where you can A) photograph birds in moderately distant trees, B) be able to zoom in on the other side of a valley and frame something of your interest. Those are just two examples. One thing you will NOT be able to do effectively with this lens, however, is to take sport shots with it. How so? Consider some of the following weakness:*At 300mm zoom range the highest aperture is limited to 5.6 (You will have to use very slow shutter speed to snap fast action shots; remember the inverse relation between aperture and shutter speed.)*The lens size/weight combination makes it hard to hold steady when attached to a camera like the Rebel XT*Slow and often inaccurate auto focus... 3/5 Abdulrahman Aljabri (Jeddah) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2006

    Could be better, but works well within its price range

    After reading several online reviews of the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM lens, I had nearly talked myself out of even looking at one. However, thanks to a local Canon demonstration, I was able to play with several lenses, the 75-300mm f/4-5.6 among them. I got to try it out alongside the IS version (which costs just under 3x as much), the non-USM version, and some of their L-series professional lenses.That said, I found there to be less difference among the directly-comparable lenses (the non-USM, USM, and IS versions) than I'd have thought. On the test shots I took using a Canon Digital Rebel XT, I didn't find full-zoom telephoto shots to be appreciably softer in the non-IS version reviewed herein, nor were the images overly soft for my liking period.The USM focusing didn't seem to make as much of a difference as I'd expected over the non-USM model, either. Focusing was still relatively slow (as other reviewers have pointed out), although once an... 4/5 John Nolley II (Fairfax, VA United States) - See all my reviews, December 19, 2005

    Buy the "IS" version instead

    If you're looking at this lens, you're more demanding than the average Joe who takes photos and have high expectations. This lens is not blazingly fast (f/5.6 at 300mm), and to reliably freeze camera shake, you're going to need a 1/500 sec shutter speed, which means that with ISO 100 film, you only can lose one stop of illumination under "Sunny 16" conditions before you have to decide comprimise somewhere to get your shot.Consequently, shots into the shade, or conducted under the warmer and softer lighting conditions of the morning/evening will inevitably drive you to the comprimise of a high ISO grainy film or the bulk of a tripod to make up for this lens's lack of optical speed. If you always shoot in full noon sunshine, you'll be okay.Even though its a great tool, most people don't like to carry a tripod, so the solution is to either accept grain in enlargements, not take certain photos, spend more money to go to a faster lens, or some combination of the above.

    I Love It For IS and Zoom Range at this Price, Not Pure Performance

    I was determined to love this lens based on the specs and price point alone. Canon really needed to come out with this lens at this price because Nikon offers a very decent Vibration Reduction lens at roughly the same range for the same price, leaving me to make apologies for Canon and their neglect to all my Nikon friends.The IS can be switched off to save battery life but I haven't noticed a difference in battery performance with it. The IS is only activiated when you press the shutter halfway for auto focus. Although it FEELS like there is a small lag for the IS to start, I don't think I've had any photos messed up because of it.You can HEAR the IS. A little bizarre after using point and shoots that have IS that is silent, but it doesn't seem to affect performancePro: Great price for an image stabilized zoom lens.

    Which lens to get

    I have a 18mm-55mm lens, and was in search for a telephoto, I read so many reviews that were so complex I didn't know what I was reading. I bought the 55mm-250mm lens and now understand some of the reviews.To break it down in simply terms:55mm (the lowest setting on the 55mm-250mm) you can not stand right on top of a subject, the lens makes you too close everything won't fit in the frame. That is Not what the lens is for & might be were some of the bad reviews come from. (Buy the 18-55mm for those close up shots)It takes time for the auto focus, it still Fast but not as fast as my 18mm-55mm. Still your not going to miss taking a picture of a bird sitting in a tree far away. But at baseball game of a kid catching a 50mph ball I missed some shots (why I gave 4 stars). Not the lens fault more mine I should have used manual focus!!On auto focus, after all it has a LOT of setting to go through 55 to 250mm settings.

    Great telephoto lens to complement your kit lens

    This is the first lens that I've purchased and kept outside my kit lens (18-55). I mentioned kept because believe it or not, I bought the 70-200 F4L non-IS. I won't be giving any technical review about this lens as that is pretty much covered by the other reviewers here. I'll just share my story to help out other beginners who are having a hard time as well contemplating on what lens to get to complement their kit lens.At first, I definitely wanted to buy a telephoto lens so I can shoot objects from a distance and I really like to try the lens out in a zoo. I then narrowed my choices between EF 70-300 IS USM and 70-200 F4L non-IS (didn't want 55-250 then because I didn't like the plastic mount). Since the latter would end up costing almost the same or even less (comes with hood and pouch plus the free filter amazon offers), I went for it without even thinking. Before the package arrived, I already had second thoughts and tried to cancel the item. Since I tried out the... 5/5 ale (Chicago, IL USA) - See all my reviews, February 5, 2009
