May 18, 2020 Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 (Sony FE) Review

In late March, Samyang contacted me to see if I wanted to look at a new lens.  I agreed, but they didn’t specify what the lens was.  I didn’t know until it arrived, but was very interested to discover a compact, portrait oriented prime lens at a focal length that I’ve never tested before – [&hel [Read more...]

May 13, 2020 TTArtisan 11mm F2.8 Fisheye Review and Gallery

Fisheye lenses are out on the extremes of photography.  Whereas often I’m evaluating lenses and critiquing if they have distortion, fisheye lenses are really all about embracing the distortion and using it in creative ways.  It’s not for beginners, and certainly can be used poorly, but there are also a lot [Read more...]

The Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 G Master OSS is an indispensable lens if you need versatile reach for sports or wildlife photography.  Other telephoto lenses that reach beyond 400mm grow exponentially, leaving the 100-400mm to often being the smallest, lightest, most convenient package to get serious reach.  Probably th [Read more...]

April 27, 2020 Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD (A056) Review

The Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD is one of the most highly anticipated lenses of 2020…and that became clear from the moment that it was announced.  Tamron has taken a different approach to its fast zooms on Sony.  Sony’s own zooms are feature rich and high performing, but they are also at the top end of [&helli [Read more...]
