Is there anywhere that I can read about different lenses?

I keep finding different lens names that i've never come across before, ei: Vivitar, Rokinon, etc.. how do I find out the quality of these lenses? Or is it better to stick to the "big names"?

Have a scan over Members reviews of lenses here :- http://www.pixalo.com/reviews/ . In addition use the "search" function on these forums for certain lenses or brands.

You may also find this thread of use :-

Re: Is there anywhere that I can read about different lenses?

Vivitar were reputable in the 80s but now are very much at the budget end, it shows in the pics from their lenses.

There are some good websites out there, Pixalo very much included. As the powers that be dislike links to other sites I can't give you links directly but there's a photo review website with a .de country code, and one run by a brazilian bodybuilder that are both useful

Silly hoops you shouldn't have to jump through but I hope its enough info to help you find them on google, otherwise drop me a pm
