April 26, 2019 Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 FE Review

The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 for Sony FE has been one of the lenses I’ve been most excited about in 2019 since Samyang told me it was coming.  Why?  On a personal note, because I’ve been wanting a good portrait lens for Sony.  I’ve been adapting the Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 VC lens, which is a [&hell [Read more...]

April 19, 2019 Zeiss Loxia 25mm F2.4 Distagon Review

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...]

March 17, 2019 Vello M42 to Sony E-mount Macro Adapter Review

I have a serious soft spot for my vintage glass (I’ve got about 12 vintage lenses that I still use adapted modern cameras).  Some of my favorites are classics from Japanese-made Takumars, Soviet-made Helios lenses, and German-made Zeiss (and their derivatives).  While many of those classic lenses have greater fla [Read more...]
