|Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX||The near focus distance of 30cm allows frame filling shots - ISO200, 1/400, f/11, 35mm|
Nikon 35mm f/1.8G - "The Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX is a superb value prime lens that delivers excellent quality images."
|EF 24mm f1.4L II USM||The bright maximum aperture is great for low-light shooting - ISO3200, 1/160. f/2.2, 24mm|
Canon 24mm f/1.4 - Had to include two prime lenses as they both scored equal scores. The Canon offers "Superb optical performance and build quality."
|85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM||Focus speeds are adequate for erratic subjects.|
Sigma 85mm f/1.4 - Excellent - don't just take our word for it, you love this lens too! Professional Photographer David Clapp likes it as well, and has used it for some excellent macro photographs. "An excellent value lens, which is more than capable of producing superb results."
|SMC-FA 200mm f/2.8 ED (IF)||Incredibly sharp images with low distortion and CA are produced by this lens.|
Pentax 200mm f/2.8 - Highest lens score, and a high quality telephoto lens. "As close to perfect as you can get in a super telephoto for Pentax."

Tamron AF 18-270mm - selected due to the great versatility offered by having such a useful zoom range in one lens. Have a look at the 365 day road test. "A decent performer with an impressive zoom range and a great range of features."
