Excerpt: This is my go to lens. I use a P65+ back with an old H1. I prefer the slightly wider perspective of 70mm over 80mm. Even though this is a zoom, the quality is as good as my 80mm prime and in general so much better than either the Mamiya or Schneider 80mm prime. The construction is solid.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have a complete hassy system and this is my favorite lens because it is so all purpose.The only flaw with it, is that it fogs in cold weather in the center of the front element.I thought it was just my lens ,so i recently rented a back up for a cold weather shoot and that one fogged as well.the...
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I use this lens for landscape, on-location/studio commerical, fashion and editorial work. It's a stellar performer and I get results that are on par with the primes with exception to the HC 100mm 2.2. I went with the 50-110 because I needed a well rounded workhorse and I haven't been disappointed.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Sharp as the 50, 80, and 100mm primes, but is a zoom! Great on location and for landscapes, gives great quality and sharpness. The only negatives are that it is heavy, and apparently has to be stored a certain way.
Pros: Consistent Output, Great Range, Rugged, Sharp
Excerpt: On my h4d-40 the bokeh and sharpness are more-less indistinguishable from primes, at least for my applications and what I can see in aperture and photoshop. The advantage of a zoom is that you don't have to choose between compromising your composition or changing lenses.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens will be used for location family portraits on the beach. It was purchased so that lens changes would not have to be made in the middle of a shoot in sandy or windy circumstances.Although it seems heavy at first, it balances well with the camera and is easy to hand hold.
Excerpt: Excellent build quality. You can use this as your only lens in the field, but you'll either need to be in great shape (this guy is heavy!), or have a "bearer". Note: should not rest or carry this lens "front down", ie, any backpack used should permit the lens and camera to be supported without the...
Pros: Consistent Output, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
