Hundreds of products are participating in the B&H Photo BILD festivities as we mentioned earlier, and I can’t list or highlight them all, but I am highlighting three name-brand 3rd-party lenses, sadly only made for CaNiKoN. Thankfully adapters/converters/etc exist ๐Ÿ™‚

This lens is not perfect [then what lens is?], but consider that you can buy TWO of these for the price of ONE Canon/Nikon-made option! Shiguma time, believe it!
