It’s not about luxury when you order the reissue of a Led Zepplin record in 180g vinyl. It’s about not sacrificing anything to hear every nuance that was recorded in the best fidelity possible. There are listeners who can’t discern that those little white plastic ear buds you jam into your ears give you only a portion of the recording you’re listening to—while destroying your hearing.
In the right hands, ultra wide-angle lenses can produce awesome images. They can also be awsomely expensive, especially the ones made by the same company that made your camera. If this rings true for you, take a look at Vivitar's Series 1 13mm/f2.8 Aspheric Super Wide lens.
Tele-extenders are terrific tools for increasing the focal length of your current lenses without taking up valuable space or adding additional weight to your camera bag, and if you're a Canon shooter, you might be interested to know about the new Extender EF 1.4x III and Extender EF 2x III tele-converters.
Even though fast super-telephoto lenses are known to be notoriously heavy, the new Canon EF 400mm/f/2.8 IS II USM, even at 8.49 lb, is more than 28% lighter than its predecessor, making it one of the lightest in it's class.
According to Canon, the new Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is 8% lighter and measurably faster than its predecessor, with improved image-stabilization characteristics, which should capture the attention of sports and action shooters alike.
For shooting on the ultra-wide side, Canon has announced the Canon EF 8–15mm/4L Fisheye USM, a rather unique lens in the sense that the wide end of its zoom range produces a circular 180-degree true fisheye image when used on a full-frame DSLR, and a full-field rectangular 180-degree fisheye image when used on a compact (APS-C format) DSLR.
