Wide Angle Lenses
The most important aspect of a wide angle lens is the focal length, measured in millimeters. Although many consider wide angle to be anything less than 50mm, we’ve targeted lenses that are below 25mm. They are useful for landscape photography, restrictive interiors, architectures and wedding photography.
Some of the wide angle camera lenses that we will be checking for deals and discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday include:
Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 is a super wide angle lens available for Nikon, Canon and Pentax.
Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 is an ultra wide zoom lens designed for APS-C size image sensors.
Tamron AF 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 (for Canon Digital SLR Cameras)
Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 (for Canon EF Cameras)
Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 – A small, light affordable lens for APS-C cameras.
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 – Decent image quality at a modest price.
Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR – An inexpensive ultrawide lens for Nikon DX cameras.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED – A wide angle lens with zoom for capturing interiors, architecture and panoramic landscapes.
These novelty lenses can produce some interesting special effects and architectural photos. A circular fisheye makes a round (or “circular”) image. The circular lenses take in a 180-degree hemisphere and projects it into a circle surrounded by black. A diagonal fisheye (also known as a full-frame) makes a rectangular image with a 147 degree field of view, filling the entire frame but with the same barrel distortion.
Some fisheye lenses include:
Nikon AF DX NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8 ED Fisheye – A full-frame fisheye for Nikon’s DX digital SLR cameras.
Nikon AF FX NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Fisheye – A compact, lightweight and fast fisheye lens for full frame Nikon cameras.
