October 15, 2018 Zeiss Loxia 21mm F2.8 Distagon Review

When the idea of mirrorless cameras was first floated, one of the main advantages that was touted was the ability to have an optically excellent camera system in a smaller, lighter configuration when compared to a typical DSLR/lens combination. That reality has proven to be somewhat inconsistent, as it isn’t atypical for some [Read more...]

October 10, 2018 Sigma 24mm F1.4 ART FE Image Gallery

Sigma 24mm F1.4 ART FE Image Gallery The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM | ART was, I believe, the only ART series lens that I missed reviewing when it was initially released.  In the past few months Sigma has been releasing new versions of its ART series in Sony FE (full frame E-mount), so I […] [Read more...]

October 3, 2018 Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2 Image Gallery

The original idea behind mirrorless cameras was they would be smaller, lighter alternatives to DSLRs due to the differences in technology while providing similar levels of optical performance.  As I’ve noted in many subsequent reviews this idea is often lost, as frequently lenses designed for mirrorless (like the Sony [Read more...]

July 10, 2018 Voigtländer 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Macro Galleries

From the moment I added Sony full frame bodies to my own personal kit, I immediately became interested in the Voigtländer 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Macro lens for two reasons.  Both of these reasons are Zeiss-inspired.  The first is that I’ve always been tempted by the Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar in both its  [Read more...]

June 29, 2018 Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 RXD (A036) Review

Sony has been vying to steal some market share from Canon and Nikon for some time, but, while their innovation and impressive spec lists have been widely applauded, the Sony E mount has lacked a competitive lens selection. In some ways that remains true (particularly in the telephoto department), but there has been a significant [Read more...]

June 24, 2018 Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART FE (A018) Image Gallery

This year Sigma announced that the majority of its ART series lenses are going to be released in a native Sony FE mount with a few fundamental tweaks to improve performance on a Sony platform.  When they were announced, I was very interested in how they would compare to adapting the Canon EF mount lenses […] [Read more...]
