Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM prime: was £339, now just £254
This is one of the most popular prime lenses for the Canon EOS DSLRs – and particularly loved by portrait photographers. The wide f/1.4 maximum aperture allows you to create artistically blurred backgrounds, and this lens is as comfortable when used in manual focus mode as in autofocus. With an £85 saving, it is a Prime Day bargain.

Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 standard prime: was £169, now just £135
This is a great fast-apertured lens for use with any of Sony's E-mount mirrorless cameras, including popular models such as the full frame A7 series, to the APS-C A6000 series. The f/1.8 maximum aperture make this great for lowlight shooting - but comes into its own for portraiture, allowing you to create blurred 'bokeh' backgrounds without spending a fortune (and you save £34 during Prime Day).

Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS telephoto: was £179 now £159
A handy telephoto zoom that is a great addition for those using a Sony mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor - such as the A6000 or A6500. This is usually a great budget buy, but for Prime Day there is £20 off the usual price.

Canon EF-S 10-18mm superwide zoom: was £239, now just £179
