The ZEISS 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* Lens is a high-speed standard lens for the exacting 35mm SLR photographer. Considered by professional photographers to be one of the world's best SLR lenses (if not the best), this "ZE" lens is now available for the Canon EF (EOS) bayonet SLR system.

All existing exposure programs (P, AV, TV, M) and the AF verification function of the camera are supported, and lens information (focal length and speed) is passed on to the camera. Certain functions that require the use of AF lenses (various subject programs, A-DEP) are partially unavailable.

The Planar lens with its front-and-back symmetry was invented by Dr. Paul Rudolf and is one of the best-known Carl ZEISS T* lenses. It is remarkably effective in eliminating aberrations and possesses very high definition allowing contrast in the subject to be faithfully reproduced.

"A Beauty...Good Lens...When recommended this lens and maker by a professional photographer he said that he would shoot on canon L series lenses (which I did before switching to Zeiss) and he would always have to focus back and forth to find that sweet spot when the Zeiss lens you turn the focus ring once and land on that sweet spot without having to do micro adjustments....Focus maybe confused with depth of field for some folks saying the focus is soft but the lens is easy to focus manually and requires a bit of understanding how DOF works."

"nice lens...Great lens...This is because the focus ring travels around almost if not at least one entire lap around the lens to go from infinity to it's closest focus point.A minor complaint, it's a beautiful lens and the bokeh and the bokeh is yummy....I would have to say this is a perfect lens for soembody who started shooting 35mm slr and now are looking for that same manual focus feel (also if you can't afford the 85mm L lens)."

The Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Canon EF Mount from Lensbaby is a fun and affordable introduction to the world of Lensbaby optics and will set you on your way to experimental, creative and gorgeous selective focus photography. The Spark tilting lens body and selective focus optic makes images with a rounded area of focus with one "sweet" spot of ultra sharp focus surrounded by a gradually more and more blurred out-of-focus zone. The effect of this lens creates a dreamy feel with a unique sense of beauty that allows the viewer to really embrace the in-focus aspect of the photo, whether it be a person's eyes or hands or a flower's petal, and then to sense the gorgeously out-of-focus or dynamically motion-blurred background.  

The lens body is all-plastic making it very light but the lens itself is a multi-coated glass doublet: two coated lenses combined to reduce reflections and offer sharp focus. The aperture is fixed at f/5.6 and the prime focal length is 50mm, a great length for portraits and general photography. The lens is manual focusing only, which is actually ideal given that you should select your point of focus with precision, and the minimum focusing distance is 13".

Compatible with all Lensbaby 37mm threaded accessory lenses and with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, the Spark is a great way to start your foray into the creativity afforded by Lensbaby lenses and accessories.

Designed to provide a wealth of control over out-of-focus quality and to enhance bokeh, the Laowa 105mm f/2 Smooth Trans Focus Lens from Venus Optics is a short telephoto prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. The unique optical design incorporates an apodization (APD) element, as well as two separate diaphragms—8- and 14-blade—to provide separate adjustment over the bokeh as well as the exposure and depth of field. This APD element functions as a radially graduated neutral density filter, and as such limits the light transmission to a T-stop value of 3.2, while permitting the depth of field and selective focus qualities of a true f/2 design.

Alongside the unique attributes of the APD element, the lens also incorporates three low dispersion elements and one extra refractive index element to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing, as well as produce a great deal of overall clarity and sharpness. The lens is also characterized by its manual focus, manual aperture design, that provides a wealth of control over focus and exposure to benefit working with the APD element.

This extreme 650-1300mm f/8-16 Manual Focus Lens from Bower is an economical way to achieve some ultra-telephoto photography, all the way up to 1300mm.  This is a T-mount lens, which means that aperture is not communicated to or controlled by the camera body, and in this particular configuration is delivered with a T-mount for Canon EOS cameras.  Use this lens only in aperture-priority autoexposure mode or in fully manual exposure mode.

It will work on both "full frame" as well as the smaller-format APS-C (15 x 22mm) cameras, but has only one effective aperture at any focal length, which varies from f/8.0 at 650mm to f/16.0 at 1300mm.  That's not much of a hinderance, however, as you'd likely use this lens at its relatively small maximum aperture in any case.

This lens requires bright light and a high ISO setting on the camera to get a fast shutter speed, and needs a sturdy tripod or monopod, but can deliver very sharp results if used properly.

The Mamiya Full-Frame, Ultra-Wide-Angle, 28mm f/4.5 Sekor D lens is another in the long line of high-quality Mamiya lenses for their 645AF system. This innovative lens is the first medium format 28mm lens for both film and digital use. The use of high-quality aspheric lens elements produces outstanding optical performance.

In the fine tradition of Mamiya quality lenses, the 28mm f/4.5 lens provides superior optical quality for a wide variety of photographic uses. Photographers from many disciplines will put this lens to good use - commercial, architectural or nature. The aspheric elements deliver true color rendition by steering the light directly to the sensor in a straight line so that there is no color shift - a problem with many lenses used with digital backs. In this way, sharpness and contrast are maximized.

A true benefit of this lens is that it has been designed to work on Mamiya's full line of  medium format auto focus cameras - both film and digital. At present, there is no other lens of similar design that meets that specification.
