“I bought this lens with HK$750 (second hand) with no...”

Written on: 21/09/2010

I bought this lens with HK$750 (second hand) with no regret at all. This is the lens I really happy with, not only because of its price, same good as the Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 which I previously owned. The optical performance (sharpness and contrast) is excellent from 19mm to 28mm when stopping down to f/8 (35mm is fairly good when you further stop down to f/11 or f/16). Obviously optically better than my Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS (and far more better than the Tokina AF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5)… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2009

I have owned one of these Cosina lenses for approx 5 years and used it on EOS 5 film camera EOS 10D Digital, EOS 400D and lately (until it went wrong) on my new EOS 5D Mk2 with some brilliant results. Yes there is vignetting on some settings and some softness on the extremes sometimes, just allow for it and crop, it's no big deal.I have Canon lenses that do the same. But I have some incredible night shots taken on my holiday in Menorca. You can get in real close and its great for inside… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/08/2009 by Analog6 (1 review written)

This lens is great value for money and has completely changed my photographic habits. I am using it for sweeping vista type shots, treescapes, some close up work of pets, and I am really happy with it.

I had a Cosina SLR many years ago and it was a terrific camera, and this lens is well up to standard. For the price it cannot be beaten.

If you want to enlarge your prints to wall size MAYBE you would then notice some CA or other deleterious effects, but for normal usage, enlargements up to… Read Full Review

For a low cost lens you cannot go wrong with the Cosina 19-35mm lens. It performs as well as or better than lens costin 2 -3 times the Cosina lens.
The lens hood looks a little shallow, but seems to do a credible job.
Treat this lens with care (do not drop it!) and it will give you great service… Read Full Review

“You use this Cosina lens with a film based camera...”

Written on: 18/07/2007 by oniko (35 reviews written)

You use this Cosina lens with a film based camera because you want to get in close yet get everything in. Stop the lens down to f-8 and everything is nice and sharp.

For the price it's great, I brought mine for £45 and use it as a photo journalistic type lens for situation and scene setting photos. Yes, you can get Canon and Nikon f2.8s that give straighter lines and better construction and edge quality but at what price? And the better quality is only slight for lots more money. At best the… Read Full Review

“35-mm owners: STAY AWAY from the Cosina lens ”

Written on: 18/03/2006 by Emile (3 reviews written)

35-mm owners: STAY AWAY from the Cosina lens
Digital owners: be advised that even center sharpness is not very good and edge sharpness, even at f11 is very poor

I traded in this lens for a Nikkor 18-35 and the difference is huge… Read Full Review
