    Will this lens fix my FujiFilm Finepix camera? If not could you recommend one. TY!

    I would like to know if the 18-270mm Tamron lens was considered for its flexibility of a really wide angle and a bit more zoom. I know it’s not the internal zoom and maybe that along with the 2.8 vs 5.6 is a big deal. Opinion?

    I was watching the video on the use of a short telephoto lens. I was wondering what brand the 70-200 MM F/2.8 lens was being used.
