Shutter Shootout 2018—Lens Edition


Last year, we celebrated March with the Shutter Shootout, and pitted cameras, new and old, against each other. This year: lenses!

Again, this is all for FUN! March is for rain showers, college hoops, and busted brackets. At B&H, we thought we would get in on the tournament madness and allow lenses to battle through their brackets to see which is best… or most popular!

To vote for the lens you like best in each matchup, head over to the B&H Photo Video Twitter account—@BHPhotoVideo—and share your opinion on which lens or lenses should advance toward the championship!

Good luck to all our Shutter Shootout—Lens Edition—contenders!

Again, this is all for fun, laughs, and smiles. If your favorite lens did not get invited to the big dance, rest assured they are probably competing at an invitational tournament somewhere else!
