While the collection of lenses has been staggering, it’s not always been easy to figure out if a Sigma lens is a high-end professional product or a consumer-level piece of optics from name and price alone.

Shutterbug reader Erick Castellón has a particular attraction to lone trees because of the patterns and textures they create against the sky. This stunning image of an oak tree was captured by Castellón in Calero Park in San Jose, California, in February 2015. “On the day I took this shot, I had been watching the clouds early in the day and was hoping for something interesting,” Castellón says.

The Lens Bracelet: Transform your passion for photography into a unique fashion statement for yourself or someone you love. The Lens Bracelet is a soft silicone replica of the focusing ring of a lens featuring the embossed lettering you’d normally find there like 50mm, AF/MF and even lens grip ridges. This bracelet is one size fits all (7 inches) and since everyone has a favorite lens type, you can choose the focal length and camera that best represents you: 50mm prime in Canon or Nikon, 24-70mm zoom in Nikon, or 70-200mm in Canon. Two bracelets are included in each set. The Canon set has a retail value of $25, the Nikon Pro set is $25 and the Original set is just $15.

If I had to choose a single lens to use for the rest of my mountain life, without question it would be a wide-angle zoom. In my case, it would be Nikon’s AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR wide-angle zoom lens. (But anything similar would probably do the trick as well.) I would choose this over a fixed lens, which would be slightly sharper, because it offers versatility to shoot both landscapes and action with more focal lengths.

Lowepro designers and engineers must gather around the workbench with a pile of camera bags and challenge each other to improve features—large and small—that are already pretty damn good to begin with. That’s the only way I can explain how their bags keep getting better and better. The updates to the Lowepro Pro Runner series, introduced in late May, prove my point.
