Before buying a lens I would like to see what kind of pictures it can take. Which websites let me see all the photos previously taken online by a particular lens (or a lens/camera combo)?

    flickr, 500px (and probably a lot of other sites) – Romeo Ninov Dec 22 '17 at 11:51
  • Try www.shutterdial.com by Flickr – Jindra Lacko Dec 22 '17 at 14:21

    This is a generally on-topic and interesting question, but these kind of things tend to be terrible for Stack Exchange, because they result in a random unmaintained list of links. – Please Read My Profile Dec 22 '17 at 18:09
  • You want to see all the photos taken with a given lens?! – Caleb Jan 1 '18 at 6:27

I have used PixelPeeper for that. It is a site which was made specially for this purpose.

Most of the well-established image sharing sites, such as Flickr and 500px, are searchable by lens model.

For example, if you want to see images taken with the Canon EF 135mm f/2 L lens, just go to Flickr, type in "EF 135mm f/2 L" in the search box in the upper right hand corner of their main page, select "Photos" from the dropdown menu, and you'll get a plethora of images with that lens in the EXIF info.

Most other image sharing sites can be similarly searched by lens.
