New lenses now available for checkout!

New glass for new photographs…


MICA Photo is pleased to announce several new lens purchases that we now have available for you to check out from the Photo Crib. Above you will see that we now have from Nikon three new prime lenses: a 20mm f/2.8, a 35mm f/1.8, and an 85mm f/1.4. These new lenses are especially good for photographing in low-light situations, and/or for obtaining a shallow depth of field.

We also have several new lenses for our Sony cameras as well. Pictured above, you will see the wide 16-35mm zoom lens, the wide 28mm f/2.0, and the “standard” 50mm f/1.8. We have two of the 50mm lenses which will also work great for shooting video.


And last, but not least, we have a new Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens for the new Canon 6D camera we just purchased. This lens is great in low-light too, and is a fantastic lens for video as well.  So come by the Photo Crib and see all the new things we have for you to borrow. New equipment can help you to see in a whole new way, and it’s also a great opportunity to try out equipment that you may want to have for your own in the future.
