Tokina AT-X 16-28mm F2.8 Pro FX Lens for Canon and Nikon
I’ve been extremely happy with my new Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 lens for both video and photography use, but it doesn’t work across all my cameras. Sure it mounts to the Canon 5D Mark II, but it’s pretty much unusable on a full frame camera [...]

Monday’s mail bag contains my two Sima L Brackets referencing this article I posted not long ago http://cheesycam.com/double-l-bracket-configuration-alzo-t-pod/.

09Aug Lens Mug Replica(s) – Upgrades!


Tweet
I blogged about the popular Canon 70-200mm Replica Lens Coffee Mugs that first showed up during the Winter Olympics ‘With Stainless Steel Insert’, and then in short time a non-OEM Canon 24-105mm replica lens cup turned up which was ok, but didn’t have a stainless steel insert for real coffee use.
