Hints
Legend:
- : not available / not possible
X : available / possible
? : unknown (to me), if you known this, bitte send an e-mail.
[1] Max. aperture:
A smaler value is better. The max.. aperture is importent for taking photos with little light and to create a blurred background, e.g. for portraits.
[2] Volume:
Calculated as a cylinder using the maximum diameter and the length. This should give you a hint, how much space is needed inside yoir camera-bag.
[3] Lens hood:
- : none available
F : integrated
S : available, with screw mount
B : with bayonet mount
[5] Sharpness:
A rough verdict of the sharpness of the lens, one to five stars are possible. This is based on the listed reviews. Lens errors like vignetting, CAs and distortion are not considered, because they can be corrected easily - some cameras and RAW-converter do this automatically. The sharpness of zoom lenses can differ with different focal lengths, in this case it is stated in brackets, ****(*) means four to five stars, *(***) is one to four stars.
min : Worst sharpness of this lens, most times in the edges of the picture with maximum aperture.
max : Sharpness at border of the picture at best aperture (most times 4 or 5.6). In the center and stopped down, all lenses reach five stars.
[6] Rating:
My short all-in-all verdict for some recommended lenses - of course this can only be my subjective opinion. The ratings are recommendations, I assign "good for beginners", "good for pros", "good MF" (for lenses without autofocus).
