Over the last few days we have been highlighting some of the best pre-Black Friday camera deals, but there are also some good discounts to be had on lenses – here are is some discounted glass which has caught our eye, and watch out for more and more over the next week.
Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 USM: now £339
A solid, versatile and fast nifty fifty, featuring a USM focus motor with full-time manual focus override, a standard 46° angle of view, 45cm closest focusing distance, two high-refraction lens elements and 58mm filter size.
Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD: now £1239 with cashback
This is a fast standard telephoto zoom lens for Sony E-mount, which is light and compact – by limiting the reach at the long end to 180mm it has enabled Tamron to achieve the goal of keeping it as light as possible while upholding a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout its range. The lens is well made and while it lacks a few of the advanced features you get with a professional telephoto zoom such as optical image stabilisation, it’s a good contender at this price.
Fujifilm XF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR: £1499 with cashback
(Wex Photo Video)
This longer zoom in Fujifilm’s X-mount line-up is relatively light, with image stabilisation effective to five stops, making it handy for both wildlife and sport, particularly motorsports. Key features include 21 elements in 14 groups, nine diaphragm blades, and a minimum focusing distancee of 1.75m. Its fighting weight of 1375g won’t make your shoulders ache too much, either.
Canon 24-70mm f2.8L II USM EF: now £1674 with cashback
Well-regarded and solid workhorse zoom for full-frame EOS DSLRs features a nine-bladed circular aperture, ring-type ultrasonic AF motor for fast and quiet autofocus, full-time manual override, a 0.38m closest-focus distance and maximum magnification of 0.21x.
Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 E FL ED VR: now £1799
Another reliable and sturdy workhorse, featuring a handy four stops of vibration reduction, a Silent Wave Motor, and assignable buttons on the lens barrel. Still a great choice for Nikon DSLR users.
