Cheaper Lens Toys

So, it’s great if you can buy expensive lenses from the company that makes your camera-they will always work with your camera body, and that’s nothing to sneeze at.  Same is true with flashes.  I’ve often told students, though, that buying a cheaper flash to begin with that you can make mistakes on and also test out what you really do as a photographer is a great thing.  Now the same thing is true with lenses.  I’ve bought other brands like Sigma that have given me just as good if not better results than the name brand at times.  So here’s a timely post, just before the holiday season!  :)


Check out what petapixel has to say about the Yongnuo lenses: The Chinese gear manufacturer Yongnuo made a splash a couple of years ago by launching a thrifty clone of the Canon 50mm f/1.4. After some more Canon lenses, this year they expanded into Nikon with a 50mm f/1.8 and a 35mm f/2. Today we have a sneak peek at an upcoming 85mm f/1.8 lens for Nikon shooters.

Based on Yongnuo’s history of pricing, it should be significantly cheaper than Nikon’s official 85mm f/1.8, which costs $430.  To read more about their comparison, check out the article link here!
