“Beautifully designed and affordably priced, this lens makes a sensational addition to any enthusiast’s camera kit.”

It’s pretty good for food photography too, though because of the crop you’ll need to lean back in your chair a bit!


I am absolutely over the moon with this lens and it takes pride of place in my tech collection whenever I sit down to shoot blog images now!
