November 30, 2017 Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Image Gallery

Wow!  It has been a long, long time I have received a new Canon L series prime lens.  It was two years ago that I reviewed the excellent Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II, and since that point I have reviewed no new L series prime lenses and only two Canon L series zooms (the somewhat […] [Read more...]

October 29, 2017 Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM Image Gallery

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM replaces a lens that is probably the most popular “L” series ever, but it has scarcely gotten any attention and has received relatively few reviews.  Why?  Photographer Dustin Abbott believes he knows why after spending some time with the lens.  Get his thoughts on [Read more...]

September 28, 2017 Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review

One of my most popular articles that I’ve ever written was entitled, “Why I chose a Canon 6D over a 5D Mark III”. The original Canon 6D was a bit of a unicorn: on paper it wasn’t very impressive, with a weak AF system and some obvious limitations imposed by Canon to create separation from […] [Read more...]

August 15, 2017 Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Review

Last year Canon introduced a novel concept that might have been lost on a lot of Canon shooters due to it being implemented on a lens for Canon’s mirrorless EOS M system – the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM that I reviewed here. That concept was a macro lens with a built-in LED ring […] [Read more...]

July 11, 2017 Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Image Gallery

Canon has just released a brand new lens for it’s EF-S (APS-C crop sensor) cameras – the new Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS.  This lens offers a different approach to macro than the existing EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM lens.  It has a wider focal length, Image Stabilization, an STM focus motor, and a unique [&helli [Read more...]

February 13, 2017 Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Review

  Before I was a professional reviewer I used to haunt a few popular photography message boards, and in many ways little has changed since becoming a reviewer. I don’t have quite as much time to spend on them, but I do like to gauge interest and feedback from real photographers both upon announcements of […] [Read more...]

January 30, 2017 Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Image Gallery

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Image Gallery Opinions have wavered on this new affordable telephoto lens from Canon, but I’ve been anxious to test it for myself.  The operation of the lens is excellent, and I’m extremely impressed once again by the behavior of the Nano USM autofocus technology.  I can [Read more...]

January 23, 2017 Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Review

  New EF-M mount lenses have been fairly few and fair between, but 2016 saw two very solid lenses released: the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens (my review here)  and this lens, the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. The 18-150 STM is both similar and different to past EF-M zooms.  It is […] [Read more...]
