Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM Zoom Lens

The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM Zoom Lens is an incredibly versatile, lightweight, and compact lens designed specifically for digital SLR cameras with APS-C size sensors. The lens has a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range. It features a construction of 17 elements in 13 groups with glass that corrects for flare, ghosting and all types of aberrations. It produces high contrast and sharp images throughout the zoom range even at its maximum aperture. Sigma's OS (Optical Stabilization) feature allows you to shoot at shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. This means your images will look sharper, even when shooting without a tripod in low existing light or at maximum range with a flash. This lens is also equipped with Sigma's Hyper-Sonic Motor (HSM) which provides for fast and quiet autofocusing. The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 is ideal for many photo opportunities particularly landscapes and portraits, but with its wide focal range and a close focusing distance down to 11" (28cm) you can capture images with unique perspectives. It will quickly become one of the most important lenses in your gear bag. Note: Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or 35mm SLR cameras. This lens is for use with digital cameras with APS-C size sensors only. 1 The DC designation on the barrel means that this is a special lens designed so that the image circle matches the smaller size (APS-C) of the image sensor of your digital SLR. Its specialized design gives this lens the ideal properties for digital cameras, including a compact size and lightweight construction. The 17-50mm f/2.8 offers Sigma's OS System (Optical Stabilization) that allows shooting at shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would be otherwise possible, for sharper handheld photography even in low-light situations. Constructed with 17 elements in 13 groups, it features FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass which is the highest level low dispersion glass available with extremely high light transmission. This glass has a performance equal to fluorite glass which has a low refractive index and low dispersion compared to current optical glass. FLD glass offers superior optical performance, equal to fluorite, at an affordable price. Its HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet & high-speed auto focus. Sigma lenses are made in Japan.

Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH POWER O.I.S. Lens

A versatile zoom covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives, the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras, where it provides a convenient 24-70mm equivalent focal length range. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent performance throughout the zoom range, and benefits working in difficult lighting conditions as well as enables greater control over depth of field. The sophisticated optical design employs a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index glass elements to control a variety of aberrations and distortions for sharp, clean image quality and a Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to reduce ghosting and flare. A POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake to suit handheld shooting, and this O.I.S. system is also compatible with Dual I.S. for enhanced stabilization performance. Additionally, the lens also features a durable all-metal housing that is dust, splash, and freezeproof to enable its use in harsh climates. Standard zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 24-70mm equivalent focal length range. Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range. Four aspherical elements, one ultra extra-low dispersion element, and one ultra high refractive index element all contribute to minimizing chromatic and spherical aberrations and various aberrations in order to produce a high degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy. Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality. POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, and also supports the Dual I.S. function for increased stabilization performance. Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions. Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

Canon EF 35-80mm f/4.0-5.6 II Zoom Lens

At 6.2 oz. (175g), this is the lightest compact zoom EF lens. An excellent value. The aspherical element makes it compact and helps obtain high-contrast images. At the 80mm focal length, a postcard can fill the viewfinder frame. Lead-free glass is used.

GoPros make those impossible shots a reality. Whether you're mounting it to a snowboarder racing down a Black Diamond trail or just trying for a high angle time lapse, now it's all possible with 4K! And with the mobile app, it's easier to operate than ever over wifi or Bluetooth. The processor is 3 times as fast as the Hero 3, and it sports a new Auto Low Light mode. This is the first GoPro to shoot 4K at 30 fps.
