Lens tasting at Cafe Atlantique

Bring your Canon or Nikon and make a few frames of some of the best class those companies have to offer. We'll have some Sigma and Tamron lenses to sample too. You are welcome to try as many lenses as you can in the time provided. We'll have some munchies and the cash bar at the café is open. This is a great opportunity for DSLR owners to test drive a fast lens off our rental shelves.

Most of these lenses have maximum aperture openings that are 2 or 3 times as wide as a regular kit lens. That means these lenses let in more light and are great at lower light level shooting; plus their wide apertures make for great soft focus backgrounds. And they are sharper than your average lens.

This event is free to meetup members. Lenses are available on a first come basis. You need a valid ct driver's license and credit card to lens taste. Participants are liable for any damage to a lens while in their short possession.

This event will be held rain or shine. Participants will need to bring their own camera.

Lenses expected to appear include*:

For Canon -[masked],[masked] L macro,[masked]:8, 8-15mm, 16-35, 10-22, 8-15, 50mm 1.2

For Nikon- 300mm 2.8,14-24, 24-70, 17-55,[masked], 50mm 1.4

Sigma/Tamron for Nikon & Canon-[masked], 85mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4, 24-70mm, 105mm Macro, 90mm macro, 10-24mm

[masked] for canon
