Hey matty reps,
I found one wide angle lens attachment that should work for your camera and I have attached a link to it so you can see what you think. I have little experience with these types of lens attachments, and have heard they're not nearly as good as having a wide angle/fisheye lens that mounts directly to the camera. If you don't mind losing autofocus you can usually find very cheap manual focus lens that are very high quality lenses for sale at some local camera shops. I hope this helps!

Own DSLR camera would like to know the single best lens for the DSLR?


"Best" lens depends on several things:

1. What kind of pictures do you intend to take?
2. Do you mind a heavy leans? Some are 10 pounds or more.
3. Your budget.

The "standard kit lens" that most come with is perfectly good for general photography. If you want to take architectural pictures, you'll need something different. If you want wide landscapes, you will need a wide angle, and if you want wildlife/bird pictures, you'll want a telephoto lens. It all really depends on what you intend to do...

For example, I have a very wide lens I use for interior architectural pictures, medium telephoto for portraits, and a variety of long to very long telephotos for wildlife pictures...

Yes, there are some extreme zoom lenses that cover 'normal" to "very long" telephoto. They're expensive, not especially sharp, and very heavy. Everything is a compromise.

Need lens (up to 200)


Lens needs are determined by the type of photography one shoots. Example, for my needs I use three prime lens, 35 mm, 50 mm, and 100 mm. Sold all my zoom lens purchased primes.

The question is what are you attempting to capture? On a zoom lens look towards a constant aperture, not one when we zoom the aperture changes.

I want to put a new lens on called "wide angle lens" but am not sure how to fit it onto the camara


Well, I'm sure you figured it out by now, but typically there is a small red dot on the lens, near the connecting ring... This lines up with a similar dot on the camera. There is only one way the lens will go on, and still have auto-focus and other functions be able to be controlled by the camera.

Sometimes, when someone is handling a lens, it is possible to move the lock ring. This will keep the lens from engaging at all, with the camera. Try that area.

What size lens do i need for this camera?


You just need any Minolta AF mount lens. Sony Alpha lenses also physically fit as Sony inherited the Minolta lens mount when they bought the company, but as they are a later development not all will be electronically compatible.

The size of the lens depends upon the focal length of the lens and you choose that according to how wide a field of view you desire. Typical lenses are 28 and 35mm wide angles, 50mm "standard" (approximately the same perspective of how the human eyeball sees images), 70 to 90mm short telephoto lenses (a narrower perspective and very good for portraits) and higher numbers are narrower perspective telephoto lenses for viewing increasingly distant objects. In practice, the available lenses will be incorporated into zoom lenses which incorporate a seamless range of focal lengths within one single model. The word "zoom" reflects the fact that you can seamlessly change from say 28mm wide angle through to 80mm short telephoto and every single setting between them

Any zoom which starts at less than 50mm and finishes in the short telephoto range is called a standard zoom and is the lens that most autofocus cameras were supplied with. The next most common size will be something like a 70-200mm which is a telephoto zoom (or tele zoom) and takes you from a portrait lens to a genuine 5x magnification telephoto. You may also find so-called "super zooms" which do the whole job on one, for example 28-200mm. but the more jobs a single lens tries to do, the bigger and bulkier it becomes and the image quality deteriorates due to poorer contrast and greater image distortion at each end of the zoom range.

This is not an exhaustive answer, as there are entire books on the subject, but hopefully it's been of help to you.

I want to go digital will my lens fit on a digital camera if yes what model camera should i get


Any of your lenses will fit on any Nikon digital SLR camera. However, there are several things to consider.

Most Nikon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This means that your lenses will give the same angle of view as a lens with a focal length 1.5 times longer. For example, your 50mm lens will give the same angle of view as a 75mm lens would. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except the D700 and D3 series.

If the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, some dSLRs will not be able to meter with them. Of the current models, the D7000, D300s, D700, and D3 series will work.

Most old autofocus lenses will not autofocus on some dSLRs. Unless the lens is designated "AF-S" they will not autofocus on the D3000, D3100, and the older D40, D40x, and D60.

Will the lenses for a film camera (Canon EOS Rebel) fit a new digital body? Thanks.


Yes the Canon EOS lenses from film bodies will fit and work well on Canon digital bodies.
Depending on the Canon digital body you select the lens may have a 1.6 x factor. Meaning the focal length of the film lens will become a longer focal length. For an example Canon's 50mm f1.8 lens on the APS size digital sensor will translate to an 80mm equivalent. This is great for most people but, getting a good wide angle lens is a bit of a challenge, there has to be a tread off somewhere. There are Canon full frame cameras that this factor doesn't apply, for example a Canon 5D.

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

Do the old AF lenses for the Nikon N60 SLR fit the new DSLR cameras


Hi ericm675, Yes they will. What you run into is were one uses a auto focus lens on a newer digital such as a D40. Some of the new digital cameras do not have the drive gear to turn the autofocus on the lens. Those newer cameras use electronics. Look on your camera lens mount at 7:00 you will see the drive pin. Look on your old autofocus lens you should see a slot where that pin fits. Hope this helps you.

I lost the lens cap for my wide angle lens on my Maxxum 7000. Are they available and if so, where can I get one?


I don't know which wideangle lens you have, but there most likely is a number giving the the size of the thread in front of the lens. If there isn't, you can measure it with a ruler marked in millimeters. Either way, simply order a lens cap of that size online or buy it at a good camera store. If you can't find the size, simply take the lens with you to a camera store and find a lens cap that fits. You don't need to find a specific brand, about the only thing that matters is the size. Unless, that is, you care a whole lot about the styling...

What flash could you use with quantaray Dakota RZ-2000 35mm SLR camera?


It's a completely manual SLR so you can use just about any standard flashgun. I think it even comes with a pc flash socket, so you can even use really old flashguns which were used when hotshoes were just plain accessory shoes and lacked any electrical contacts.

There's no point in buying a flash, you can get one for free on your local FreeCycle group. manually controlled flashes make you think a bit more as you have to relate the aperture and film speed to the distance of your subject (read the distance from the focussing ring on your lens), but there's always a calculation table printed onto the flash. Automatic exposure units just need you to set the aperture as directed on the flash and then the flash adjusts it's own output depending upon how much light gets reflected back from the subject, but they frequently make the wrong guess, so I prefer fully manual units.

Note that I haven't mentioned shutter speeds as they have no direct effect on flash exposures; all you need to do is to pick a shutter speed which ensures that both shutter curtains leave the film fully exposed at the moment of exposure. On most SLR's this will be 1/60th or slower, and if the shuuter spped dial has a speed with a letter X next to it, then that's the fastest shutter speed you can use with flash.

You need to choose the flash according to what you want it for. A small compact unit is lightweight and will still outperform any built-in flash but it might not give a wide enough coverage angle if you have a lens wider than, say, 35mm. Some flashes are designed to work at wider angles, sometimes via a clip on adapter, and others may have a zoom head which you adjust to match the focal length of your lens. There are big heavy duty hammerhead flashes and there are also small specialist ring flashes where the flash tube fits on the end of your lens to give very flat, even, shadowless lighting for close-up shots of small objects. They're a specialist item which few photographers ever need.

To help you to choose a flash you can look at it's quoted guide number (GN). This is usually quoted in metres but some are a bit backward and still use feet, normally because it makes the quoted number bigger and therefore makes the flash seem more powerful. The calculator chart on the flash will still normally use feet and metres though.

I hope that I've assisted you, please take a moment to rate my answer or add comments to ask for additional clarification if anything I've said has left you scratching your head.

So called "dedicated" flashes are unnecessary for your camera. They have additional electrical contacts which exchange data with the camera, but yours lacks the facilties to use them.
