Kiron Kid's reviews

  • Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical IF Macro SP AF

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp & well built.
    A bit slow. But if made faster, it would cost MUCH more.

    I hesitated for some time, before pulling the trigger on this purchase. My mistake. I promptly burned two rolls of fine grained film with it, and the results are VERY good. Upon glassing the negs, (10x loupe on light table) I found the negs to be very sharp and defined. Great color & contrast. I used it on the F100 body, and had no issues with focusing. Quite fast. It's not too heavy or awkward. It very well, will probably become my "go to" auto-focus lens. It's much better than both versions of the Nikon 24-120 lenses.

  • Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D AF Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Well built, lightweight with sharp optics.

    I've been very pleased and satisfied with the performance of this lens. It's a bit lightweight, but it is built well. The "macro feature (1:2) is much better than I expected. I've also found it to be quiet sharp at all focal lenghts (aspheric elements). I've used it hard, professionally for over five years, and it still performs like new. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one or recommend it to someone else.

    If you don't mind the speed, this lens delivers the goods. It is sharp!

  • Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Very sharp, small, compact and well built.

    I borrowed this lens on three separate occasions. I was quite impressed with it. If I was a Canon shooter, this lens would definitely be in my bag!
