General info

1.Weather sealed
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

For example

Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR

2.has or is a prime lens
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.

3.Is a wide angle lens
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.

4.Front element doesn't rotate
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

5.Includes lens hood
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

2.minimum angle of view

92.6°

At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).

3.magnification

0.1x

A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.

4.optical zoom

1x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS

11x

5.maximum angle of view

92.6°

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).

Aperture

1.widest aperture at maximum focal length

2f

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

2.widest aperture

f/2

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

3.smallest aperture at maximum focal length

22f

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

4.smallest aperture at minimum focal length

22f

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

5.aperture blades

9

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.

Focus

1.Has full-time manual focus
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

2.minimum focus distance

0.28m

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

Best

Samsung NX 10mm F3.5 Fisheye

0.09m

3.Can focus to infinity
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

4.Has focus motor
Tokina Firin 20mm F2 FE MF

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

For example

Fujifilm GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR
